3 Synaptic Connections Between Acupuncture Afferent and Efferent Pathways [25, 28] The final region of the acupuncture afferent pathway is found in the M-HARN, which is anatomically close to the P-HARN, the initial region of the acupuncture efferent pathway (Fig. 3). Microinjection of the dopamine antagonist haloperidol antagonizes AA dose-dependently, while microinjection of dopamine into the P-HARN induces dose-dependent analgesia. , as the neurotransmitter at the interface between the acupuncture afferent and efferent pathways.

14). Beta-endorphin and ACTH released concomitantly from the pituitary gland might be the presynaptically acting neurohumoral factors in AA and non-AA, producing dopaminergic transmission in the P-HARN (Fig. 5). The possibility that ACTH acts as a neurohumoral factor in other regions of the non-AA afferent pathway has been examined by recording potentials evoked by nonacupoint stimulation after lesioning in the A-HARN, the final station of the non-AA afferent pathway. Such evoked-potentials in the A-HARN are enhanced by intraperitoneal administration of ACTH and are markedly decreased by hypophysectomy.
