Problem Statement: Researchers have long researched the results of acupuncture, including the use of modern techniques such as a neuroimaging. There are few neuroimaging studies performed on microsystems such as auriculotherapy. There are points in auricular acupuncture with recommendations for soothing and other revitalizing effects, which are more conspicuous for practical practice than based on scientific research. Find good results in different sources of stimuli, such as electrotropuntura and laserpuncture, however, studies on these actions are timid. A functional autonomic nervous system (ANS) performance analysis is based on heart rate variability, vascular compensation response (HR min / HR max), obtaining autonomous amplitude and frequency. The individual and physiological variability associated with acupuncture have also been reported in the literature.
Objective: To evaluate an influence on the central nervous system by stimulating between laser and electro in auriculotherapy, through neuroimaging, anxiety control and heart rate.
Theoretical methodologies: Equipment with brain and peripheral sensors was used to capture changes in brain images, anxiety control and real-time heart rate with different stimuli used at auricular points.
Conclusion: It was observed with the data captured in the images that the Stimulation with laserpuncture and electropuntura, has an effective and differentiated response. Conclusion and meaning: a neuroimaging allows to intensify the investigations with microsystems, to investigate its main points, different sources of stimuli and provoked neurophysiological reactions. Thus, it will direct an update and an evolution of auriculotherapy
