[The effect of electro-acupuncture at auricular & body acupoints on the curve changes of the pressure-volume of urinary bladder and the electric activity of pelvic nerves of rat]
Institute of Acupuncture & Moxibustion, China Academy of TCM, Beijing.
The electric discharges of the post-pelvic ganglionic vesical nerve fibers were recorded to investigate the effect of acupuncture on the function of urinary bladder. It has been demonstrated that the changes of the pressure-volume of urinary bladder are controlled not only by the wall of the urinary bladder its self, but also by the regulation of parasympathetic nerve; the electro-acupuncture can play an role of regulation in the functional state of urinary bladder through nerves.
