Visual neuromagnetic activation in females with migraine


  • Female migraineurs exhibit aberrant visual-evoked neuromagnetic activation versus healthy females; this effect is amplified with a higher-frequency visual stimulus.

Why this matters ?

  • Migraine is pervasive among females and neurological symptoms are often visual in nature – this study demonstrates the value of magnetoencephalography (MEG) in detecting visual pathway changes in female migraineurs.
