No efficacy of tDCS on chronic migraine

Link – No efficacy of transcranial direct current stimulation on chronic migraine with medication overuse: A double blind, randomised clinical trial. Abstract BACKGROUND: Transcranial direct current stimulation was suggested to provide beneficial effects in chronic migraine, a condition often associated with medication overuse for which no long-term therapy is available. METHODS: We conducted a randomised […]

Neurofeedback cf tDCS on Sleep Quality of Patients With Migraine.

Link – Comparing the Effectiveness of Neurofeedback and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on Sleep Quality of Patients With Migraine. Abstract Introduction: Migraine is considered one of the most common primary headache disorders. Migraine attacks may occur due to a lack of sleep. Furthermore, sleep is regarded as one of the smoothing factors of migraine pain. […]

Exploring EEG Spectral Patterns in Episodic and Chronic Migraine

Link – Exploring EEG Spectral Patterns in Episodic and Chronic Migraine During the Interictal State: Determining Frequencies of Interest in the Resting State. Abstract OBJECTIVE: The analysis of particular (electroencephalographic) EEG frequency bands has revealed new insights relative to the neural dynamics that, when studying the EEG spectrum as a whole, would have remained hidden. […]

Cervical Noninvasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation Meta-Analysis.

Link – Cervical Noninvasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation for Migraine and Cluster Headache: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. Abstract BACKGROUND: Noninvasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS) has been proposed as a new neuromodulation therapy to treat primary headache disorders. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effectiveness and safety of peripheral nerve stimulation of the […]
