- Differences in cortical response to acupressure and electroacupuncture stimuliThomas Witzel
Harvard Medical School, Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Charlestown, MA 02129, USA
BMC Neurosci 12:73. 2011..We used whole head magnetoencephalography (MEG) to map S1 brain response during 15 minutes of electroacupuncture (EA) and acupressure (AP). We further assessed how brain response changed during the course of stimulation...
