  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the Effect of stimulus in the Acupuncture point with Ultrasound and Electro-acupuncture on human's Cholinesterase activity. Pain is physiological symptoms in human body. Pain stimulation transference is according to Acetylcholine that is a matter of nerve stimulation. Cholinesterase analyze the Acetylcholine and Cholin acetylase compose the Acetylcholine. To identify of Cholinesterase activity, this study attempted to Electroacupuncture and Ultrasound for 20 person. Twenty subjects participating in this consisted of A group(difference of Cholinesterase's figure make use of Electroacupuncture with Zi-Shil), B group(difference of Cholinesterase's figure make use of Ultrasound with Zi-shil), C group(difference of Cholinesterase's figure make use of Eltroacupuncture and Ultrasound with Zi-shil). As a result the following conclusion was draun: 1. A group showed significantly decreased of Cholinesterase's figure make used of Electroacupuncture with Zi-Shil(the period is between pre-application and 20minute after application, between pre-application and mean of 20minute-30minute after application). 2. B group showed significantly decreased of Cholinesterase's figure make used of Ultrasound with Zi-Shil(the period is between pre-application and 3minute after application, between 3minute after application and 7minute after application, between preapplication and 7minute after application, between pre application and mean of 3minute-7minute after application). 3. C group not showed significantly decreased of Cholinesterase's figure make used of Elcetroacupuncture and Ultrasound with Zi-Shil(the period is between pre-application, between 20minute-Eletroacupuncture and 3minute-Ultrasound after application, between 30minute-Eletroacupuncture and 7minute-Ultrasound after application). The results of this study showed that decrease of Cholinestese' s figure make used of Elctroacupuncture and Ultrasound Zi-Shil. The result mean stimulation of Elctroacupuncture and Ultrasound decreased Acetylcholin' quantity. And decrease of Acetylcholin' quantity decreased Cholinesterase' figure.

  • Objectives : The aim of this study was to examine the effects of electro-acupuncture(EA) at the SP6(Sameumgyo)-GB39(Hyeonjong) on normal human EEG using power spectral analysis. Methods : EEG power spectrum exhibit site-specific and state-related differences in specific frequency bands. In this study, power spectrum was used as a measure of complexity(LAXTHA Co., KOREA). 30 channel EEG study was carried out in 20 subjects $(20\;males;\;age=21.4{\pm}0.5\;years)$. Results : In $\alpha$(alpha) band, the power values at F4 channels(p<0.05) during the SP6-GB39 acupoints treatment was significantly increased. But, the power values at Fz channel during the non-acupoint treatment was significantly decreased . In $\beta$(beta) band, the power values at Fz, FTC1, T3 channels(p<0.05) was significantly increased during the SP6-GB39 acupoints treatment. In $\delta$(delta) band, the power values at F4, C3, Cz, CP1, Pz channels(p<0.05) during SP6-GB39 acupoints treatment were significantly decreased.

  • The aim of this study was to examine the effects of electroacupuncture(EA) at the PC6 (Naegwan) on normal humans using KarhunenLoeve decomposition method. Electroencephalogram(EEG) is a multi-scaled signal consisting of several components of time series with different dominant frequency ranges and different origins. EEG KarhunenLoeve decomposition method exibit site-specific and state-related differences in specific frequency bands. In this study, KarhunenLoeve decomposition method was used as a measure(D2) of complexity. 30 channel EEG study was carried out in 10 subjects (10 males; $age=21.4{\pm}0.5$ years). Results : We found that the average values and standard deviations of D2 at FP1, FP2, FTC1, FTC2, TT1, TT2, T4, TCP1, P3, P4, T6, OZ channel (p<0.05) were higher than during the acupuncture treatment, and the average values and standard deviations of D2 at F3, F8 channels(p<0.05) were lowered than during the acupuncture treatment. However, the comparison with that before and after the treatment shows no significant differences in all channels.

Methods : EEG power spectrum exhibit site-specific and state-related differences in specific frequency bands. In this study, power spectrum was used as a measure of complexity. 32 channel EEG study was carried out in 9 subjects (9 males; age=25,8 years). Results : In alpha band, the power values at Fp2 channels(p<0.05) during the $H_7-acupoint$ treatment significantly were decreased. In beta band, the power values at Fp1, Fp2 channels(p<0.05) during the $H_7-acupoint$ treatment significantly were decreased. In delta and theta band, the power values at the $H_7-acupoint$ treatment significantly was increased than the before-acupuncture treatment. Conclusions : This results suggest that electroacupuncture at the $H_7$ is significantly in beta band of EEG.

  • Objective : To ascertain whether the concept of the treatment side is associated with changes in the blind spot mapping that represents the brain function. Methods : Among the outpatients who visited to Department of Acupuncture & Moxibustion, National Medical Center from March 2002 to October 2002, we selected 40 clinical trial volunteers that showed right side physiological blind spot more enlarged than left, and underwent the examinations of Department of Opthalmology, National Medical Center for ruling out the pathological conditions. Physiological blind spot maps were used as an integer of brain activity before and after electroacupuncture application on the unilateral ST36 meridian point by dividing 40 subjects into two comparative groups for double-blind controlled study. Results: The significant changes in the blind spots were observed. Electroacupuncture application on the ipsilateral or contralateral ST36 of an enlargement cortical map were associated with the concept of determining the treatment side. In the case of electroacupuncture application on the ipsilateral side of an enlarged blind spot, there were decrease of $4.11{\pm}8.56cm$(17.3%) in blind spot perimetry length(p < 0.05). In the case of contralateral side, there were increase of $3.19{\pm}5.40cm$(13.7%) in blind spot perimetry length(p<0.05). The Differences were statistically significant(p<0.05). Conclusions: We found that eletroacupuncture application was associated with an increase or decrease in the brain function in the view of blind spot changes depending on the treatment side. These results suggest that the traditional acupuncture therapeutic strategy with determining the treatment side has clinical significance in the view of the brain function.

  • Purpose : In order to study the effectiveness of East-West pain treatment on central poststroke pain(CPSP), we evaluated its effect on alleviation of pain and rehabilitation of CPSP patients who were treated with eletroacupuncture and west pain treatment for four weeks. Methods : Twenty four patients diagnosed by their pain characteristics of central pain form stroke were treated with sympathetic nerve block, gabapentin, amitriptyline, and electroacupuncture for four weeks. Pain intensity through the visual analogue scale(VAS), and improvements of mobility and rehabilitation through the modified Barthel index(MBI) and Rankin scale(RS), respectively, before and after pain treatment were also assessed. Results : VAS pain scores were significantly improved from $7.7{\pm}1.7$ to $4.4{\pm}2.0$ with pain treatment(p<0.05). In accordance with improvement of ain scores, RS and MBI scores ere also improved from $2.88{\pm}0.95$ to $2.13{\pm}1.01$ and from $83.0{\pm}16.9$ to $94.7{\pm}9.5$(p<0.05), respectively, with pain treatment(p<0.05). Conclusions : It was suggested that the active pain treatment was contributed to the rehabilitation of CPSP patients, resulting in improvement of quality of life of CPSP patients. Futhermore, East pain treatment in combination with West pain treatment may be useful modality to alleviate CPSP.
