PMID: 31563226.


Transient disturbances in neurologic function are disturbing features of migraine attacks. Aura types include binocular visual, hemi-sensory, language and unilateral motor symptoms. Because of the gradual spreading quality of visual and sensory symptoms, they were thought to arise from the cerebral cortex. Motor symptoms previously included as a type of migraine aura were reclassified as a component of hemiplegic migraine. ICHD-3 criteria of the International Headache Society, added brainstem aura and retinal aura as separate subtypes. The susceptibility to all types of aura is likely to be included by complex and perhaps epigenetic factors.
