Vestibular migraine: Evaluation of rotatory motion perception and susceptibility to motion sickness

Takeaway

  • Vestibular migraine (VM) results in decreased threshold for rotatory motion perception and increased susceptibility to motion sickness, with no significant impact on vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR).

Why this matters

    It is not well understood how underlying pathophysiological mechanisms of VM relate to migraine and vestibular symptoms. The results of this study suggest that there may be central sensitization of sensory-vestibular processing in VM patients.
