Advancing Achievement

In the institute, students can learn about both traditional meridian-acupoint theories and current scientific researches either in clinic settings or on laboratory animals. Based on developed novel techniques and instruments we have earned many results to improve clinical therapy and to know more about basis of traditional Chinese medicine. In the institute, we have gained evidences that acupuncture actually does reduced stroke-induced neural deficit; reduces inflammatory and neuropathic pain; improve itch sensation and reduced cocaine-induced animal death, etc. Also with reconstruction of medical diagnostic images to 3D images several specific acupuncture functioning areas were located. With our previous works, several functioning areas and detail mechanisms about meridian-acupoint theories are recognized. By these works, we hope to understand acupuncture in a modern way and to polish its value.
