Abstract

Central (cortex and upper brainstem) and peripheral (trigeminovascular) mechanisms are involved in the pathophysiology of migraine. We propose that unknown migraine triggers initiate depolarization of cortical neurons followed concomitantly by a transient increase in blood flow. This transient hyperemia spreads at a rate of 3-6 mm/min followed by… (More)
