BACKGROUND Neuroimaging studies implicate hypothalamic dysfunction in the pathogenesis of cluster headache (CH). Disruptions in non-traditional pain processing areas, including the cerebellum and visual cortex, have also been reported in CH. It is unknown whether the hypothalamus interacts significantly with these areas, and whether any such interactions vary between the 'in-bout' and 'out-of-bout' periods in CH. This study aimed to investigate the resting-state functional connectivity (FC) of… CONTINUE READING
