Menière syndrome and vestibular migraine: cortical brain projections
A comparative study of cerebral cortical projections in migraine, in Ménière Syndrome and in Ménière Syndromes with migraine has been carried out. The analysis was made by Brain Electric Tomography – Loreta and the most significant areas have been evaluated by means of Statistical non Parametric Mapping – SnPM. Ménière Syndromes together with migraine are nothing else but typical signs of vestibular headaches.
The regular Ménière Syndrome (vertigo-hypoacusis-tinnitus) has a very important cortical representation in frontal areas Brodmann 25, Limbic Lobe and the Parahippocampal Gyrus.
Activity of these areas is associated with modulatory attentional demands and the individual’s emotional state. Waves present in Delta Band in these areas are related to bipolarity signs and not medicated schizophrenia.
