Beta-endorphin and ACTH released concomitantly from the pituitary gland might be the presynaptically acting neurohumoral factors in AA and non-AA, producing dopaminergic transmission in the P-HARN (Fig. 5). The possibility that ACTH acts as a neurohumoral factor in other regions of the non-AA afferent pathway has been examined by recording potentials evoked by nonacupoint stimulation after lesioning in the A-HARN, the final station of the non-AA afferent pathway. Such evoked-potentials in the A-HARN are enhanced by intraperitoneal administration of ACTH and are markedly decreased by hypophysectomy.

Analgesia produced by stimulation of both the HVM and the P-HARN is associated with the second category. Synaptic transmission from the P-HARN to the HVM is apparently dopaminergic, since analgesia produced by stimulation of the P-HARN is blocked by lesions of the HVM or by dopamine antagonists (Fig. 1).
