Furthermore, acupuncture stimulation of both the acupoints, ST-36 and ST-43, evoked activation at the ipsilateral middle frontal gyrus (BA10). These results suggest that different acupoints on the same meridian may activate similar areas of the brain. In addition, acupoints that are commonly used in clinical practice might affect a greater extent of the cortical areas than the uncommonly used acupoints. 3 Unique Physiological Features of Acupoints The so-called “acupoints” may have some special physiological feature than the non-acupoints.

All these reports indicate that mast cells at acupoints might play a role in accepting the stimulation and producing acupuncture response. However, the transmission of the mast cell-mediated chemical signal may still depend on the nerves at the acupoints. ), biophysical characteristics (electricity, sonics, photology, thermology, electromagnetism), pathological response, and effectiveness (Xu et al. 2005; Lee et al. 2005; Jin et al. 2008). However, these studies were basically restricted to phenomenon-observation stage, and provided no/few convincing results regarding some key factors influencing the acupoint specificity and the underlying mechanisms.
