New studies shed light on topics such as nonencephalic pain and headache chronicity; benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes and social cognition; and causal triggers of Alzheimer disease onset. Scroll through the slides for the stories and links to the studies.
Data from the CaMEO study indicate that noncephalic pain may be a marker for headache chronicity that might be used to predict risk for chronic migraine in people with episodic migraine and people with chronic migraine at risk for persistent chronic migraine.
