BACKGROUND Based largely on data from animal models, migraine is hypothesized to involve changes in neural function in brain areas that mediate nociception--specifically, the trigeminal nerve, spinal trigeminal nucleus, and thalamus. These hypotheses about migraine pathophysiology can be tested directly in humans for the first time, with recent advances in functional neuroimaging techniques, which allow assessment of functional activity of specific brain areas. This article discusses the… CONTINUE READING
