Increasingly sophisticated neuroimaging techniques have allowed researchers to begin to define functional and anatomical characteristics of migraine. This paper reviews current knowledge and techniques employed. Assessing present-day knowledge limitations it concludes that with parallel advances in the technology of imaging and the pathophysiologic understanding of migraine, a reliable biomarker may be discovered in the future. © 2006 by American Headache Society.

    ABSTRACT: Migraine and depression are common conditions that often coexist. The combination of several mechanisms may explain this comorbidity. A number of studies showed consistent association between depression and primary headache disorders including migraine; however, migraine with aura showed the strongest association with depression. This review highlights the background of migraine and depression, and summarizes studies that have investigated the risk for depression in migraine sufferers.

    ABSTRACT: An equivalent circuit representation, which has been successfully used in SAW transversely coupled resonator filter (TCF), is extended to longitudinally coupled resonator filters (CRF). In TCF case usually two fundamental modes are accurate enough to represent the passband but more modes (most of them are `quasimodes' located outside of the stopband of the structure) are needed for CRF. A mode identification method is introduced in terms of equivalent motional parameters, R, L, and C and then applied to two experimental examples, a narrow bandfilter on quartz and a 3% bandwidth filter on 36° YX-LiTaO<sub>3</sub>. The results confirm that it could be a useful tool for system designer as it is compatible property with commercial electronic circuit CAD software. The profiles of the main resonant modes detected by a laser probe are presented in this paper

    ABSTRACT: A 57-year-old woman presented with an escalation of her headaches which ultimately progressed to multiple strokes and death. MRI/MRA demonstrated diffuse vasospasm and other causes of stroke were excluded on premortem investigation and postmortem examination. Reversible MRI abnormalities, vasospasm on angiogram and fatal migrainous infarction have been previously reported; however, no previous case with this combination of clinical, imaging, and postmortem findings has been documented.
