Key clinical point: Gender-related differences should be kept in mind when it comes to experiments and treatment approaches for migraine patients

Study details: Forty-six migraine patients without aura (23 females) and 46 age-matched healthy controls (23 females) were evaluated and analyzed using a three-stimulus oddball paradigm.

Disclosures: None.
