Abstract

It is new clear that the brain of the headache sufferers are different from those of people without headache, the
imaging study showed thickening in specific area of brain related to communication of sensory processing
called somatosensory cortex (post central region) in this study we examine 36 patient, 28 of them have
headache of variable duration, 8 healthy patient used as control (i.e. has no headache). The result has found
that the cortex area of brain is thicker in pre central and post central cortex, especially predominant in post
central cortex and this thickening isincreasing with duration of headache and not related to the age of patient,
the explanation of these structural changes will be discussed in this study
