Session Title: Emerging Concepts in Migraine Pathophysiology

Description: Headache is the second to third leading cause of global years lived with disability. Migraine headaches represent one of the most disabling headache diagnoses, affecting 12% of the general population. The economic and social impact of migraine, particularly in women, highlight the need to better understand mechanisms involved in migraine headache generation and its accompanying symptoms. Basic science and clinical research in migraine have culminated in new translational targets, providing renewed hope for migraine patients. Despite these recent advances, there are still many unanswered questions about disease mechanism. The focus of this session is to highlight emerging discoveries in migraine research that increase our understanding of the biological mechanisms of trigeminal pain, cortical events involved in migraine aura and accompanying incapacitating symptoms like light sensitivity.

Chair: William Renthal, MD, PhD, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School
