AbstractIt has been reported that signal change can be detected in proton density-weighted functional imaging in both the brain and the spinal cord. This effect was attributed to extravascular proton density change during neuronal activation. In this study, the effect of sensorimotor deficit-implicated acupoints stimulation (LI4 and LI11) was used as stimulus on 11 volunteers. During stimulation, 8 out of 11 subjects had consistent functional activations in C6-C7. Bilateral activation pattern was common. Our findings show that sensorimotor deficit-implicated acupoints can modulate the activities in the spinal cord.
