Springer and The Journal of Headache and Pain have interviewed PhD Student Álvaro Planchuelo-Gómez and members of the Headache Unit of the Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid. In this interview, the findings of the article White matter changes in chronic and episodic migraine: a diffusion tensor imaging study are summarized. Moreover, the implication of the findings and some future research lines are outlined. Link to the interview: https://thejournalofheadacheandpain.biomedcentral.com/author-question-answer
PhD Students Elisa Moya-Sáez and Álvaro Planchuelo-Gómez took part in the I Edition of the "#HiloTesis" competition. The objective of this competition is to expose a summary of the doctoral thesis through a Twitter thread in 20 or less tweets using a clear and atractive language for the general audience. Elisa's thread is focused on the application of Artificial Intelligence to generate MRI data in order to reduce the acquisition time. Álvaro's thread is focused on the analysis of MRI data from diverse modalities to characterize the structural properties of the brain of patients with migraine. The threads in Spanish are available in the body of this article.
Dr Oscar Peña passed yesterday his PhD with flying colours (despite some connection issues). The Thesis dissertation is entitled “Optimized acquisition and estimation techniques in diffusion MRI for quantitative imaging”. Thanks so much to the external examiners and welcome Oscar to the dark side of the post-PhD life.
The LPI, in collaboration with the Headache Units of Hospital Universitario de la Princesa (Madrid), Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid and Hospital Clínico Universitario Lozano Blesa (Zaragoza), has contributed to the assessment of the clinical course of migraine during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Approximately half of the migraine patients who participated in the study reported worsening of their usual pain during the COVID-19 lockdown. The emotional impact of the lockdown and changes in the migraine triggers worsened the clinical course of migraine.
