The peak voxel for each cluster and the corresponding name of the anatomical region are given. “+” represents increased activities during the period of acupuncture stimulation from resting state. BA: Brodmann area. The maximum P value for voxels was 0.01 and all surviving voxels had an adjusted P value <0.05.
