Özet

Objective. - Prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the blink reflex (BR) is a reduction in BR excitability due to a conditioning stimulus, reflecting sensory gating by brainstem structures. We aimed to analyze PPI changes during a painful episode in chronic or episodic migraine and its relation to allodynia, since abnormal brainstem filtering has been hypothesized in migraine pathophysiology.
