Migräne und Meditation : Merkmale der kortikalen Informationsverarbeitung und der Stressverarbeitung bei Migränepatienten, Probanden mit Meditationserfahrung und Kontrollprobanden ; eine explorative Querschnittsstudie

Universität Rostock, 2016

Abstract: The present study showed that information and stress processing in people with meditation experience is improved compared to migraine patients and healthy controls. Especially the application of the negative stress increasing strategy “Rumination” was highest in migraine patients and lowest in meditators. Rumination appears to activate cortical processing which may lead to a migraine attack. Meditation seems to prevent this mechanism and should be considered as a mechanism of action in the treatment of migraine.
