Hypothalamic stimulation in chronic cluster headache: a pilot study of efficacy and mode of action.
We enrolled six patients suffering from refractory chronic cluster headache in a pilot trial of neurostimulation of the ipsilateral ventroposterior hypothalamus using the stereotactic coordinatesExpand

Orbitofrontal cortex involvement in chronic analgesic-overuse headache evolving from episodic migraine.
The way in which medication overuse transforms episodic migraine into chronic daily headache is unknown. To search for candidate brain areas involved in this process, we measured glucose metabolismExpand

Efficacy of coenzyme Q10 in migraine prophylaxis: A randomized controlled trial
Riboflavin, which improves energy metabolism similarly to coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), is effective in migraine prophylaxis. We compared CoQ10 (3 × 100 mg/day) and placebo in 42 migraine patients in aExpand

Nociceptive Blink Reflex and Visual Evoked Potential Habituations Are Correlated in Migraine
Background.—Lack of habituation, as reported in migraine patients between attacks for evoked cortical responses, was also recently found for the nociceptive blink reflex (nBR) mediated by brainstemExpand

The Syndrome of Transient Headache with Neurological Deficits and CSF Lymphocytosis (HaNDL): Electrophysiological Findings Suggesting a Migrainous Pathophysiology
Episodes of headache with transient neurological deficits and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) lymphocytosis are suggestive of a benign and self-limiting syndrome which was first delineated by Bartleson etExpand

Combined Pharmacological and Short-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy for Probable Medication Overuse Headache: A Pilot Study
We studied the effects of short-term psychodynamic psychotherapy (STPP) and pharmacological therapy in 26 consecutive patients with probable medication overuse headache (pMOH). Patients underwent aExpand

Interictal habituation deficit of the nociceptive blink reflex: an endophenotypic marker for presymptomatic migraine?
Habituation of the nociception-specific blink reflex (nBR) is reduced interictally in migraine patients. This could be related to the habituation deficit of evoked cortical responses, a reproducibleExpand

Somatosensory evoked high-frequency oscillations reflecting thalamo-cortical activity are decreased in migraine patients between attacks.
A deficit of habituation in cortical information processing, including somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs), is the most consistent neurophysiological abnormality in migraine patients betweenExpand

Acute subcortical stroke and early serotonergic modification: a IDAP study
The intensity dependence of the auditory‐evoked potentials (IDAP) is inversely related to serotonergic tone. Depression is frequently observed after stroke, associated with cognitive impairment andExpand
