Electroacupuncture Involved in Motor Cortex and Hypoglossal Neural Control to Improve Voluntary Swallowing of Poststroke Dysphagia Mice

Figure 5

Electroacupuncture stimulation improves swallowing counts, SP release, and water intake in mice. (a) The changes of EMG and real-time spectrum in each group: EA (acute) > EA (chronic) > sham EA > model, , . (b) Swallowing counts in each group: , compared with the 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). (c) Substance P: compared with normal, in EA (acute) and in the model, sham EA (acute), and EA (chronic). Compared with the model, # in EA (acute), ## in EA (chronic). EA (acute) vs. EA (chronic): △△. (d) Mice drink water within 1 hour: normal > EA (chronic) > EA (acute) > sham EA (acute) > model. (e) Total water consumption: compared with normal, in the model and in sham EA (acute) and EA (acute). Compared with model, in sham EA (acute), in EA (acute), and in EA (chronic). Compared with sham EA (acute), in EA (acute). Compared with EA (acute), in EA (chronic).
