About this book

This book introduces essential advances in acupuncture studies using multi-modality neuroimaging, which provides insights into how specific brain networks are involved in acupuncture effects in humans. Stimulating different acupoints to treat various clinical conditions is usually accompanied by multi-dimensional physiological as well as psychological responses, which are regulated by the central nervous system. The book addresses disease-specific neural correlates and acupuncture-targeted regulatory encoding in the brain, and explains the temporal-spatial encoding in brain networks to clarify the acupuncture mechanisms. By highlighting the targeting mechanisms of typical indications of acupuncture, this book provides a scientific explanation for acupuncture therapy.

Reviews

“This is a very interesting use of assessment tools, as well as modern knowledge of the brain and its functions, to assess an ancient medical model. … The audience includes any medical providers or students with an interest in the efficacy of TCM … . The book incorporates a depth of knowledge of both paradigms of thought and synthesizes the science of both. ... I love this book and will incorporate its contents into classes that I teach.” (Barbara J. Gosse, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2017)
