OBJECTIVE We intended to study the effect of check size on visual evoked potential habituation in interictal migraine, using the faster 3 per second reversal rate and an improved analytic procedure with block-number blinding. BACKGROUND Habituation in migraineurs has been extensively studied with visual evoked potentials. Despite discrepant results,(More)
OBJECTIVE Lack of habituation is considered a neurophysiological hallmark of migraine. However, the results of visual evoked potential (VEP) studies have been discrepant, possibly because of different stimulation parameters and lack of blinding. Hence, there is a need for independent confirmation of lack of VEP habituation in migraine. In this blinded study(More)
OBJECTIVE High-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) modulates cortical excitability. We investigated its effect on visual evoked potentials (VEPs) in migraine. METHODS Thirty-two headache-free controls (CO), 25 interictal (MINT) and 7 preictal migraineurs (MPRE) remained after exclusions. VEPs to 8' and 65' checks were averaged in(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that secondary somatosensory cortex (S2) is involved in the migraine pathogenesis, by exploring the effect of navigated repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) to S2 on thermal perception and pain. METHODS In this blinded sham-controlled case-control study of 26 interictal migraineurs and 31 controls, we(More)
OBJECTIVE Sleep restriction seems to change our experience of pain and reduce laser evoked potential (LEP) amplitudes. However, although LEP-habituation abnormalities have been described in painful conditions with comorbid sleep impairment, no study has previously measured the effect of sleep restriction on LEP-habituation, pain thresholds, and(More)
OBJECTIVE Results have varied between studies of pattern-reversal visual evoked potential (PR-VEP) habituation, possibly caused by differences in stimulation parameters. Our aim was to estimate the interaction between check size and reversal rate on PR-VEP-habituation in healthy subjects. METHODS Thirty-four healthy volunteers participated. Mid-occipital(More)
