Bioengineering assessment of acupuncture, part 4: functional magnetic resonance imaging.

Crit Rev Biomed Eng. 2006;34(4):327-45.


In the fourth part of this review article, research on the topic of acupuncture and functional magnetic resonance imaging is described. Needle as well as painless laserneedle stimulation have led to significant changes in different areas of the brain. With the help of modern biomedical engineering equipment and neuroscience, some of acupuncture’s secrets have begun to be revealed. The neuro-modulating effects require further investigation in a larger population sample.
