Fig. 6. Altered brain regions of c-Fos positive cells expression after ACU (LT) and ACU (FG) in 4-weeks CRS model. (A, B) The changed brain regions compared to the CRS were represented in descending order after ACU (LT) and ACU (FG). (C, D) After ACU (LT) and ACU (FG), the brain regions corresponding to both showing a statistically significant difference compared to the CRS and greater than 50% change compared to the CRS were analyzed. (E) The brain regions corresponding to showing a statistically significant difference and greater than 50% change compared to the CRS after ACU (LT) and ACU (FG). Abbreviations of each brain region are shown in Table 1. ACU (FG) : four gate acupuncture treatment, ACU (LT) : liver tonification acupuncture treatment, CRS : chronic restraint stress, CRS+ACU (FG) : CRS followed by four gate acupuncture treatment, CRS+ACU (LT) : CRS followed by liver tonification acupuncture treatment, ↑50% : more than 50% change.
