We have no idea what the physiological significance (if any) could be of low resistance at acupoints. It is known that sweating has a profound effect on skin resistance; this forms the basis of lie detector tests. Stress, which activates the sympathetics, causes sweating and a drop in skin resistance. In a preliminary study we have determined that sweating occurs uniformly over the skin surface (equally at acupoints and over the surrounding skin). Moreover, the ear lobe is practically devoid of sweat glands, yet resistance phenomena are claimed to occur there as well  (but see ).
It is further claimed that during disease of particular organs the resistances at acupoints are abnormally low (even lower than the usual low resistance at acupoints; but see ). Indeed, the Japanese (Ryodoraku) method of measuring the acupoint skin resistance on the body has been in widespread use in Japan since it was introduced by Nakatani in 1950 , while Nogier and the French school  have made observations at ear acupoints (but see also ). In Germany, the Voll and Vega machine has concentrated on another skin electrical phenomenon, whereby the initial peak resistance reading is ignored, while the capacitative "fall-back" of the reading to a steady-state (higher resistance) value is considered diagnostic.
Large peripheral nerves. The larger the nerve the better. 2. Nerves emerging from a deep to a more superficial location. 3. Cutaneous nerves emerging from deep fascia. 4. Nerves emerging from bone foramina. 5. Motor points of neuromuscular attachments: a neuromuscular attachment is the site where a nerve enters the muscle mass. This is not always the actual neuromuscular synapse, which may occur a few centimeters further along the nerve and after it has divided into smaller branches. The pathophysiological significance of this neuromuscular attachment is unknown.
