Electroacupuncture Reduces the Effects of Acute Noxious Stimulation on the Electrical Activity of Pain-Related Neurons in the Hippocampus of Control and Neuropathic Pain Rats
EA was ineffective in the presence of U0126. (a) Example of the effect of U0126 + EA and EA only on the impact of brief sciatic nerve stimulation on the firing rates of hippocampal PENs () and PINs (). (b) Combination of U0126 and EA increased the discharge frequency changes of PENs caused by acute noxious stimulation to a larger extent than that observed in the EA group. (c) Combination of U0126 and EA decreased the discharge frequency changes of PINs caused by acute noxious stimulation to a larger extent than that observed in the EA group. : compared with EA group, .
