SGCs in migraine : satellite glial cells (SGCs) - missing piece in migraine headache puzzle?

Project Details

Description

To characterize basic cellular phenomena of migraine, we study the potential role of trigeminal satellite glial cells (SGCs) in migraine pathogenesis. SGCs are non-neuronal cells in the trigeminal ganglia that not only support neighboring neurons but also potentially communicate with them. This may lead to initiation or maintenance of migraine pain.
