Journal Article
Asghar, A. U. R., Green, G., Lythgoe, M. F., Lewith, G., & MacPherson, H. (2010). Acupuncture needling sensation: the neural correlates of deqi using fMRI. Brain research, 1315, (111-118). doi:10.1016/j.brainres.2009.12.019. ISSN 0006-8993

The needling sensation of deqi is considered by most acupuncturists to be an important component of acupuncture, yet neuroimaging research that investigates this needle sensation has been limited. In this study we have investigated the effect of deqi... Read More about Acupuncture needling sensation: the neural correlates of deqi using fMRI.

Network-based activity induced by 4-aminopyridine in rat dorsal horn in vitro is mediated by both chemical and electrical synapses (2009)
Journal Article
Chapman, R. J., Cilia La Corte, P. F., Asghar, A. U. R., & King, A. E. (2009). Network-based activity induced by 4-aminopyridine in rat dorsal horn in vitro is mediated by both chemical and electrical synapses. The Journal of physiology, 587(11), 2499-2510. doi:10.1113/jphysiol.2009.171777

This study investigated the role of electrical and chemical synapses in sustaining 4-aminopyridine (4-AP)-evoked network activity recorded extracellularly from substantia gelatinosa (SG) of young rat spinal cord in vitro. Superfusion of 4-AP (50 micr... Read More about Network-based activity induced by 4-aminopyridine in rat dorsal horn in vitro is mediated by both chemical and electrical synapses.
