Mentoring Philosophy:

The Headache Physiology Lab’s mission is to understand the mechanisms of migraine and post-traumatic headache. These related disorders are commonly understood as "only" headaches, but they are much more, involving disruptions in all the senses, activation of stress responses, and for many patients—a transition to a chronic pain state.

On a scientific level, we approach migraine and post-traumatic headache as systems neuroscience problems. Our core hypothesis is that these disorders are manifestations of dysfunctional network plasticity.
