Pathophysiology and management of patients with migraine who experience aura

Neurologists frequently see patients with migraine who report aura: approximately one third of patients have these transient focal neurological symptoms before or during some of their headaches.1 These may be visual, sensory, language, motor and brainstem symptoms, of which visual aura is the most common.2Two key questions arise: what is the cause of these symptoms, and can aura be prevented? Evidence presented at MTIS 2018 provided some insight into these questions. 

Please see the accompanying video in which Michele Viana and Shazia Afridi give a summary of clinical aspects and pathophysiology of aura.
