Visual and trigeminal pain networks are integrated in the mechanisms behind migraine with aura

Takeaway

  • Study showed an abnormal functional brain response to trigeminal heat stimulation in people with migraine with aura (MwA) compared to those without aura, indicating that visual and trigeminal pain networks could have functional integration in the mechanistic causes behind MwA.

Why this matters

    To date, few studies have been carried out in people with MwA that investigated neuronal correlates of pain processing.
