Migraine Mechanism is a great educational film about migraine and how it occurs. Opthalmologist Craig Blackwell, MD, of Santa Cruz, California, produced this video. He has been American Board of Opthalmology certified since 1986, and has been performing eye surgeries for twenty years. As Dr. Blackwell explains, his film is about what happens in the brain during a migraine. In his film, Dr. Backwell covers visual aura; headaches; Cortical Spreading Depression; pain impulses in the Trigeminal Nerve; the role of Serotonin; and Treatment with Triptans and CGRP Blockers.
