LPI research on the effects of COVID-19 lockdown in migraine

[03 Mar 2021]

The LPI, in collaboration with the Headache Units of Hospital Universitario de la Princesa (Madrid), Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid and Hospital Clínico Universitario Lozano Blesa (Zaragoza), has contributed to the assessment of the clinical course of migraine during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Approximately half of the migraine patients who participated in the study reported worsening of their usual pain during the COVID-19 lockdown. The emotional impact of the lockdown and changes in the migraine triggers worsened the clinical course of migraine.

International Day of Women and Girls in Science

[11 Feb 2021]

The International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on 11 February, is an opportunity to promote full and equal access to science for women and girls. The challenge is getting more women working in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Diversity in research brings in fresh perspectives, talent and creativity.

This Day is a reminder that women and girls play a critical role in science and technology communities and that their participation should be strengthened.

LPI adheres to this initiative and, especially today, highlights the work of its women researchers.

 

Phenotyping of headache in COVID-19

[27 Jan 2021]

Members of the LPI, in collaboratation with the Headache Units of the Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid and the Hospital Clínico San Carlos (Madrid), have characterized diverse phenotypes of headache attributed to COVID-19. A phenotype with migraine characteristics and another one with tension-type headache features were found. Moreover, a possible third "COVID-19 specific" phenotype was hypothesized, possibly related to anosmia.

Multimodal analysis of MRI modalities in migraine

[12 Jan 2021]

A paper about simultaneous analysis of features from different MRI modalities entitled Multimodal fusion analysis of structural connectivity and gray matter morphology in migraine has been published in Human Brain Mapping. This article has been written by Álvaro Planchuelo-Gómez, Santiago Aja-Fernández and Rodrigo de Luis-García, in collaboration with the Headache Unit and the Department of Radiology of the Clinical Hospital of Valladolid. The methodology of this research allowed to assess the associated changes between specific features with no need of descriptor maps. Regarding migraine biomarkers, strengthened connections with pain processing regions and weakened connections within each lobe were identified in both groups of migraine patients.
