Figure 1

(a) Acupoint of HT7 (Shenmen: experimental acupoint) and LI5 (Yangxi: control acupoint). HT7 is located in the ulnar end of the crease of the wrist, in the depression of the radial side of the tendon of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle of the wrist. LI5 is located on the radial side of the wrist in a depression between extensor pollicis longus and brevis tendons. (b) Experimental block design of fMRI. Acupuncture was applied at each acupoint, followed by 15 blocks of 20 s stimulation and 16 blocks of 20 s rest. S: stimulation. R: rest.
