The Headache Physiology Lab’s mission is to understand the mechanisms of migraine and post-traumatic headache. These related disorders are commonly understood as ‘only’ headaches, but they are much more, involving disruptions in all the senses, activation of stress responses, and for many patients – a transition to a chronic pain state.
On a scientific level, we approach migraine and post-traumatic headache as systems neuroscience problems. Our core hypothesis is that these disorders are manifestations of dysfunctional network plasticity.
We use a variety of techniques including:
- Optical intrinsic signal imaging,
- two-photon microscopy,
- and electrophysiology.
- We also perform focused physiological research on migraine patients.
