Abstract: Release of cholecystokinin-like immunoreactivity (CCK-LI) in the medial thalamus of conscious rats was measured by brain dialysis and enzyme immunoassay. Analgesia caused by low-frequency electric stimulation of the tibial muscle, the tsusanli acupuncture point, was judged by change of pain threshold due to the stimulation. Medical thalamic CCK-LI released was increased by peripheral electric stimulations of both the acupuncture point and the non-acupuncture point. Results suggest that CCK acts as a neurotransmitter in the medial thalamus, a part of the analgesia inhibitory system.
