Hi All,

See this:

Siedentopf CM, Golaszewski SM, Mottaghy FM, Ruff CC, Felber
S, Schlager A. Functional magnetic resonance imaging detects
activation of the visual association cortex during laser AP of the
foot in humans.Neurosci Lett. 2002 Jul 12;327(1):53-6. Dept of
Radiology II, University Hospital of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria.
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of laser AP on
cerebral activation. Using functional magnetic imaging (fMRI)
cortical activations during laser AP at the left foot (Bladder 67) and
dummy AP, were compared employing a block design in ten
healthy male volunteers. All experiments were done on a 1.5 Tesla
magnetic resonance scanner equipped with a circular polarized
head coil. During laser AP, we found activation in the cuneus
corresponding to Brodmann Area (BA) 18 and the medial occipital
gyrus (BA 19) of the ipsilateral visual cortex. Placebo stimulation
did not show any activation. We could demonstrate that laser AP
of a specific acupoint, empirically related to ophthalmic disorders,
leads to activation of visual brain areas, whereas placebo AP does
not. These results indicate that fMRI has the potential to elucidate
effects of AP on brain activity. Publication Types: Clinical Trial
