Figure 5: EA increases neuronal firing in the contralateral M1 and S1 within 24 hours of unilateral focal photothrombotic infarct in M1 (electrophysiological recording in vivo). Samples showing raster and spectrum for spike firing (A1 and B1). Time showed is 300 seconds. Impairment of spike frequency induced by stroke was rescued by electroacupuncture treatment in Layer 5/6 of both M1 (A2) and S1 (B2). For M1: number of units = 44, 43, and 53 for the sham, stroke, and stroke + EA groups, respectively. For S1: number of units = 103, 44, and 107 for the sham, stroke, and stroke + EA groups, respectively. All experiments were repeated five times. Data are presented as means ± standard error of the mean. See [Table 1] for the number of mice used in [Figure 5]. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 (one-way analysis of variance with post hoc Bonferroni correction). EA: Electroacupuncture; L5/6: Layer 5/6.
