To explore the possible concurrent brain functional and structural alterations in patients with migraine without aura (MwoA) patients compared to healthy subjects (HS). Seventy-two MwoA patients and forty-six HS were recruited. 3D-T1 and resting state fMRI data were collected during the interictal period for MwoA and HS.

    Interesting that the morphology of the brain changes in several regions of the brain in those with migraines (loss of tissue) but the functional changes occur in other areas of the brain. The only area that has both morphology change and functional change is the median raphe nuclei.

    This study shows that the entire brain is involved in migraine. It is truly a disease that is all over the brain.
