Aurora’s path in neurology was set toward headache
care after her mother complained she could only see half the family

neurology’s rare specialists in headache.
Aurora, a doctor in Stanford Health Care’s Headache and Facial Pain
Clinic, has learned much about what triggers migraine, the most common
type of headache and the most debilitating. In this video, she talks
about how migraine alters the brain and what research may soon offer
for diagnostic testing and treatment options.
