Preclinical studies to dissect the neural mechanism for the comorbidity of migraine and temporomandibular disorders (TMD): the role of CGRP.


Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and migraine can be co-morbid. This can be a significant factor in exacerbating and increasing the prevalence of migraine-like symptoms. However, the underlying putative mechanisms involved are not known. Our objective was to dissect these neural mechanisms, and the role of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) as a key modulator, in this co-morbidity.
