People with episodic migraine have a faulty somatosensory blink reflex in the peripersonal space

Takeaway

  • Modulation of the somatosensory blink reflex in the peripersonal space is defective in people with episodic migraine.

Why this matters

    Insufficient space representation can influence the processing of nociception; changes in pain by altering body and space representations could provide novel therapeutic options.
