Figure 3

Electroacupuncture stimulation affects central and peripheral neurons activities. (a) Power spectral density in each group. Normal vs. model, ; normal vs. EA, ; normal vs. sham EA, . Model vs. EA, ###; model vs. sham EA, ##. EA vs. sham EA, △△. (b) Spike counts in motor cortex: , compared with normal, in EA and in the model and sham EA. Compared with the model, ### in EA and ## in sham EA. Compared with EA, && in sham EA. (c) Pyramidal peak value in each group: compared with normal, in others group. Before sham EA vs. after sham EA: ##. Before EA vs. after EA (acute): △△△, before EA vs. after EA (chronic): △△△. After EA (acute) vs. after EA (chronic): &&. (d) Pyramidal spike counts in each group: before sham EA vs. after sham EA: , before EA vs. after EA (acute): ###, before EA vs. after EA (chronic): ##, and after EA (acute) vs. after EA (chronic): . (e) Photograph was shown that hypoglossal nerve has been separated. (f) Hypoglossal nerve spike counts: compared with normal, in others group. Compared with model, in sham EA (acute) and in EA (acute) and EA (chronic). Compared with sham EA (acute), in EA (acute). Compared with EA (acute), in EA (chronic).
