Problem Statement: Researchers have long investigated the results of acupuncture, including the use of modern techniques such as neuroimaging. However, research on microsystems such as auriculotherapy is scarce. There are points in auricular acupuncture with recommendations for possible calming effects and other revitalizing ones, which are consecrated more by practical experience than based on scientific research. There are good results in different sources of stimuli, such as electro-acupuncture and laserpuncture, however, studies on these actions are timid. Functional Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) performance analysis is based on cardiac rhythm variability, vascular compensation response (HR min/HR max), obtaining autonomic amplitude and frequency. The individual variability and physiological changes associated with acupuncture have also been reported in the literature. Objective: The objective of the study was to evaluate the immediate influence on the ANS by stimulating points and with different materials in auriculotherapy, through neuroimaging, anxiety control and heart rate. Methodologies & Theoretical Orientation: Equipment with brain and peripheral sensors was used to capture alterations in brain images, anxiety control and real-time heart rate with different stimuli used at auricular points. Results: It was observed with the data captured in the images that the stimulus with laserpuncture, electro-acupuncture and needle have a faster response than the seed of Vaccaria when used in the acupuncture point Shen Men, kidney and vegetative nervous system. However, when stimulated the point of joy, even with seed Vaccaria the response was immediate. Conclusion & Significance: Neuroimaging makes it possible to intensify research with microsystems, to investigate its main points, different sources of stimuli and the neurophysiological reactions provoked. Thus, it will guide the performance and evolution of auriculotherapy.
