Acupuncture Changes Brain's Perception And Processing Of Pain.

Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), researchers have captured pictures of the brain while patients experienced a pain stimulus with and without acupuncture to determine acupuncture's effect on how the brain processes pain. Results of the study demonstrated activation of brain areas involved in pain perception was significantly reduced or modulated under acupuncture and suggest the effectiveness of acupuncture.
