A research team from Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine detected the effect of electro-acupuncture (EA) at Lianquan (CV23) on swallowing and swallowing-related(SR) interneuron in ventrolateral medulla (VLM ). Their findings suggested that EA could regulate the swallowing function via activating the SR interneurons in VLM under the physiological condition​(Ye et al. 2019)​ . Original Abstract […]

Lee et al ​1​ compared 135 patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with 165 healthy controls using fractional anisotropy (FA) analysis to document differences in brain network connectivity as a biomarker of cognitive deficits and brain tissue dysfunction. The study found that differences in the cingulate area and amygdala and lower FA values in the […]
