Abstract By plotting his own scotomas at regular intervals during migraine attacks, Lashley came to the conclusion that a disturbance was advancing at about 3 mm/min. over the visual cortex. The apparent nature of the disturbance, and its rate of advance, correspond closely to those of a spreading depression observed by Leao in the cortical activity of rabbits, cats and monkeys. If these two phenomena are indeed related, the fact may suggest a means of improving migraine therapy.
