Additionally, neuro-imaging studies at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston have shown that acupuncture effects a network of systems in the brain, including decreasing activity in the limbic system (the emotional part of the brain) and activating it in the parts of the brain that typically light up when the brain is at rest.  Other studies at the Martinos Center have shown that patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, a painful compression of nerves in the wrist, have heightened activity in parts of the brain that regulate sensation and fear, but after acupuncture, their brain patterns more closely resemble those of healthy subjects.
