Pathological Mechanisms and Therapeutic Targets for Migraine Headache

Gregory Dussor, PhD – Eugene McDermott Professor and Department Head, Neuroscience, School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, UT Dallas

About the Talk

With research focusing on pathological mechanisms and therapeutic targets for migraine headache, experiments in Dr. Dussor's laboratory have focused on understanding cellular mechanisms of neural activation/sensitization as well as plasticity. Recently, his team has begun to investigate mechanisms that may contribute to the higher prevalence of migraine in women, including the hormone prolactin and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP).
