Neurobiology of Acupuncture

This volume summarizes the recent development in acupuncture research and in particular, the neurobiology of acupuncture. It provides a focused but diverse range of subjects covering many body systems. The first few chapters discuss the basic principles of acupuncture, then its modulatory effects on the nervous system, such as the induction of neurotrophin and neurogenesis in the brain. Late chapters explore the clinical effects and potential mechanisms of acupuncture on different conditions ranging from neurological diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and stroke to psychiatric illnesses, insomnia, hypertension, gastrointestinal diseases, infertility and drug addiction. The final chapter discusses the problems and challenges faced by acupuncture researchers in clinical studies with suggestions for revamping design and analysis for future studies. We believe this will promote the understanding acupuncture treatment and enhance acupuncture research in the future. This volume of International Review of Neurobiology brings together cutting-edge research on the neurobiology of acupuncture. It reviews current knowledge and understanding, provides a starting point for researchers and practitioners entering the field, and builds a platform for further research and discovery.
