    Migraine IIN 3D in vivo

    A tantalizing 2D glimpse of a fascinating 3D neuroimaging project. A novel 3D-Immersive & Interactive Neuronavigation (3D-IIN) through the impact of a spontaneous migraine headache attack in a patient's brain in vivo. Jove http://www.jove.com/video/50682/3d-neuronavigation-vivo-through-patient-s-brain-during-spontaneous "In the future, this exploratory 3D method could provide a much more immersive and interactive perspective for examining the brains of patients in research and the clinic." shocked

    NRXN3

    Hey Tangerinearmy, I'm thrilled that you are interested. Reading this paper “literally” - It suggests - “mutations in the ADH4 gene” Does this mean we're “Mutants”! It also states - “a novel rearrangement involving NRXN3 gene” Does that make us noveltee's or novelties?? Published research in this field follows two lines, this ADH4 line and the HCRTR line. Here is a good read on HCRTR Frontiers in Neuroscience orexin/hypocretin receptor pharmacogenetics http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fnins.2014.00057/full Here is an overall view - The journal of Headache and Pain Genes and primary headaches: discovering new potential therapeutic targets http://www.thejournalofheadacheandpain.com/content/14/1/61 Here Professor Peter Goadsby explains the importance of finding a “Biomarker” What’s on the horizon for headaches Ob.Gyn.

    Thanks for your informative and entertaining links Chfather. Poor old Ozzy. Even though he seems to have parked his caravan on a different planet he still gets my vote for inclusion onto our honours list/hall of fame just for being the original “headbanger” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headbanging Unfortunately his son Jack has been diagnosed with MS, and suffers“agonising migraines” Dailymail - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2510982/Jack-Osbourne-suffers-vision-problems-continues-DWTS-rehearsals.html shocked
  10.  Congratulations and well done Bob mate, Here is an interesting talk by PG, He talks first about CH and then goes on to chart the progression of this field of research (migraine) from cats (1985) to Lilly's acquisition/reacquisition of Arteaus "Bedside to Bench and Back: Improving care for headache disorders"  He could do with some advice on his wardrobe. Previously April 22, 2014 - CGRP-targeted migraine prevention drugs succeed in phase II clinicalneurologynews http://www.clinicalneurologynews.com/index.php?id=9985&type=98&tx_ttnews[tt_news]=249161&cHash=da03e20e36 Drugs that hit CGRP may even help other headache types, Dr. Dodick added. "There is some evidence that CGRP is also important in other serious headache disorders such as chronic migraine, medication overuse headache, and cluster headache – disorders that are currently very difficult to manage." shocked

At the LTFU, participant #3 reported that his migraine cycles and the accompanying pain had been significantly reduced for a number of months after the LSD treatments. Participant #12 reported no migraine in the 12 months up to the LTFU. This incidental observation may be an indication to support some recent studies (Sewell et al., 2006). shocked Edit: Can't get the Michigan link to work but it googles ok.

    Shulgin Research

    Shulgin Farm Research Update 2013 Podcast 394 Podcast features the 2013 Palenque Norte Lecture by Dr. Paul Daley in which he talks about Sasha Shulgin, his life and his work. Paul is one of the key people who has stepped in to consolidate and continue the experimental research begun by Dr. Shulgin. In addition to telling about SashaÂ’s chemical research, Dr. Daley also talks about some of the reasons Sasha has given for why he does what he does. And we also hear about some of the ongoing research taking place in SashaÂ’s laboratory, including research into a possible remedy for cluster headaches. http://www.matrixmasters.net/salon/2014/04/podcast-394-shulgin-farm-research-update-2013/ CH at 42 mins shocked
