Abstract Amygdaloid nucleus (AMYG) could converge and integrate the signals from electroacupuncture (EA) at Neiguan (P 6) and acute myocardial ischemia (AMI) in rabbits. And EA could regulate the changes in the discharge of single units in AMYG caused by AMI, that is, EA inhibited the increased frequency, and reversed the decreased frequency. This suggested that AMYG is an important link in correlation between the heart and the acupoint Neiguan, providing an experimental basis for the Theory of Channel--Viscera Correlation.
