Migraine Neurophysiology & Clinical Manifestations

In order to effectively treat a migraine, you must understand how it neuro-physiology so you can then decide how to solve it for the patient.

  • Societal impact – Costs and Epidemiology
  • Clinical manifestations and progression
  • Classification – Learn to recognize which type of migraine you are addressing.
  • Pathophysiology – Get clarity around what aspect of their physiology needs addressing.
  • Imaging – Learn the imaging you should order or need to interpret when managing the migraine patient.
  • Trigeminovascular pain pathways – Get clarity on how the trigeminovascular system is involved in migraine.
  • Brainstem and thalamic projections – Learn how the interplay between the brainstem and thalamus in the migraine case and what you can do about it.
  • Brainstem modulation – Learn how to assess the brainstem and then perform clinical applications to improve its function.
  • Hypothalamic modulation – What regulatory functions of the body need to be monitored with migraine and how do they effect your outcomes?
  • Neurotransmitter systems – Learn which neurotransmitters are involved in the migraine patient and how it relates to treatment.
  • Thalamic processing of trigeminovascular pain – Learn why is pain not limited to the trigeminal distribution of the face.
  • Cortical processing – Learn what parts of the cortex are involved in migraine and how to assess them.
  • Autonomic dysfunction – Address the discrepancies in the literature and how you can use this information to treat patients.
  • Photophobia mechanisms – How does it occur and how can you help it?
  • Aura & Cortical spreading depression – Are they the same? What does CSD have to do with migraine pathology?
  • Genetics – Learn what factors predetermine your likelihood of migraine and how it causes different types of migraine.
