The effects of acupuncture on chronic mild stress-induced memory loss
A previous study reported that the PC6 acupuncture point can alleviate chronic mild stress (CMS)-induced anxiety . Following the previous study, this study examined the effects of the PC6 acupuncture point on CMS-induced memory loss. The memory storage and acetylcholinesterase (AchE) activity in the hippocampus were measured, respectively, using a passive avoidance test (PAT) and AchE immunohistochemistry. In the PAT (retention test), the CMS group showed a markedly lower latency time than the control.
