6 Activation of the Spinal Acupuncture Analgesia Afferent Pathway by Morphine [8, 11, 12, 14, 18] Potentials evoked in the D-PAG by stimulation of acupoints are blocked by contralateral lesions of the anterolateral tract or by intrathecal administration of the antiserum to methionine (met)-enkephalin. These potentials are also blocked by naloxone but not by the administration of antisera to leucine-enkephalin or dynorphin [18] (Fig. 12), supporting the involvement of a met-enkephalin pathway activated by morphine.
