Conclusion: Our data demonstrates that both MA and EA can activate excitatory signals in either peripheral or central levels. We also define that TRPV1 is crucial for an acupuncture effect and then initiate excitatory pNR1-pCaMKII pathway, at peripheral DRG and central SC-SSC level. We suggest that the TRPV1 signaling pathway is highly correlated to Acupuncture effect that implies the real clinical significance.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;49:1813 –1824

ConclusionThe thermal effect presented an increasing tendency with the extension of pressing time, and the temperature reached the top at 7.5 min; the thermal effect showed an increasing tendency with the rise of pressing force, and the temperature reached the top upon a moderate level of force. The pressing time can produce a greater influence on the real-time temperature than the pressing force; the pressing force can produce a greater influence on maintaining the temperature than the pressing time.
