Acupuntura muda percepção e processamento da dor no cérebro  "Foram capturadas imagens do cérebro enquanto os voluntários recebiam estímulos dolorosos - uma parte deles recebendo o tratamento de acupuntura e outra parte não. Os resultados indicam a eficácia da acupuntura contra a dor, não apenas de um ponto de vista psicológico, mediante relatos, mas detectando diretamente as sensações de dor registradas no cérebro."

Branches called dendrites extending from a nerve cell (green) receive messages from other neurons at tiny protrusions called dendritic spines. A faulty protein in the spines may be related to a wide range of mental disorders. ~~ UC San Diego Health
