Abstract: Rats were given electroacupuncture for 30 minutes and decapitated for determination of cerebralcAMP. There was a significant reduction of cerebtal cAMP with the elevation of pain threshold afteracupuncture. The content of cerebral cAMP was also recovered when analgesia had been disappeared afterstopping acupuncture. Intraventricular injection of Naloxon, an opiate receptor antagonist, may comple-tely reversed the lowering of cerebral cAMP, but it failed to block acupuncture analgesia. It can be suggested from the above results that there was a complex mechanism in acupuncture anal-gesia besides its effect on the endogenous opiate like substances and cAMP.
