Abstract

The segmental neuronal connection plays an important role in acupoint-target organ specific correlation. The acupoint-target organ correlation includes acupoint-visceral correlation and acupoint-somatic correlation. The acupoint-viscera correlation involves both the primary central (spinal cord) mechanism and the peripheral (dorsal root ganglion, DRG) mechanism implemented by segmental nerve reflex via the spinal cord and axonal reflex via DRG respectively, while the acupoint-somatic correlation mainly involves the axonal reflex.
