Scalp acupuncture in combination with cognitive training can improve cognitive function in patients with cerebral injury better than cognitive rehabilitation alone. In a Chinese clinical observation study, 60 patients hospitalised for rehabilitation after cerebral injury were randomly divided into control and treatment groups. The control group received routine medical treatment plus cognitive rehabilitation training for 12 weeks. The treatment group received additional scalp acupuncture (once per day, five days per week). Cognitive assessment scores of both groups increased significantly after treatment. Treatment group scores were significantly higher than controls in the domains of orientation, visuomotor organisation and thinking operations.
