The discharges of pain-sensitive neurons of the hypothalamic dorsomedial nucleus (DMH) in Sprague-Dawley rats were recorded with glass microelectrodes, After electroacupuncture acupoints "Zusanli" and "Sanyinjiao", the rate of spontaneous discharges and the rate and duration of the pain-evoked discharges of pain-excitatory units of DMH were profoundly decreased, and the spontaneous firing rate of pain-inhibitory units was increased while their inhibitory response to nociceptive stimulation was released by the electroacupuncture. The results mentioned above suggest that DMH participates in the activity of acupuncture analgesia.
