Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture relieves different kinds of pain. However, the effectiveness of these methods is unclear. We used rs-fMRI and FC analysis to examine the RSN activity before and after acupuncture stimulation. In the result, DMN was changed with or without manual acupuncture. The acupuncture stimulation controls a pain by modifying mechanism of pain transmission.
