Cerebral electrostimulation (CES) as a treatment
for migraine headache was investigated. Eighteen par-
ticipants recorded data on headaches for two baseline
weeks. Six were assigned to each of three groups--an
active treatment group receiving CES, a placebo group
receiving a simulated version of CES, and a no-treatment
control group placed on a waiting list during the study.
The CES group evidenced a significant reduction in head-
ache duration and intensity relative to the placebo group.
The waiting list control group did as well as the CES
group. A number of hypotheses were put forth in an
attempt to account for the unexpected finding.
Here’s what’s next.
