Researchers make headway in mystery of migraines

... along nerve cells. Like an air conditioner in the heat of summer, the sodium pump is a massive energy hog, consuming around 30% of the energy produced by the cell in order to perform this vital cellular process. Of particular interest in this study is that some mutations cause migraines by reducing sodi...

Modified collagen could yield important medical applications
