Nerve and mast cells are densely distributed round acupoints in connective tissue. To discover the inner relations between them in acupuncture impact, we examined dorsal root potential (DRP) response to acupuncture at Zusanli (ST36) underneath sodium cromoglicate (DSCG, a mast cell stabilizer) intervention in anesthetized Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats. We used single unit nerve recording strategies to gather nerve alerts from DRP afferent nerves for a 45-minute interval that features four levels, that’s, base, drug absorption, acupuncture, and restoration levels. We analyzed the recorded alerts from time-domain and frequency-domain views. The outcomes confirmed that after acupuncture needle was inserted, twisting needle excited extra nerves discharges than these at base discharges in ACU (from 35.1 ± 7.2 to 47 ± 9.2?Hz, P = zero.004), and there existed the identical development in Saline + ACU group (from 23.eight ± 2.6 to 29.eight ± four.2?Hz, P = zero.059). There was no change of nerve discharges underneath twisting needle with injection of DSCG (from 34.eight ± 5.three to 34.7 ± four.four?Hz, P = zero.480). We conclude that acupuncture manipulation promotes neural sign manufacturing and DSCG may partly inhibit nerve discharges.
