Thanks D, I did enjoy the article (much easier read than last article)and now I see what you are talking about with the "posterior hypothalamus".My question is: "what is the function of this part of the hypothalamus(which
I'm guessing is your reasoning as well). I've a feeling it in itself is not as important as the realization that these hypothalamus neurons(nerve cells) are involved in the workings of our headaches. From what I see it boils down to:
1. the "extra gray matter(EGM) could indicate an excess growth of normal Hypothalamus nerve cells
2. the EGM is could indicate a growth of abnormal Hypothalamus nerve cells which could indicate:
a)scar buildup from previous cluster attacks
b)an unknown adaptation /mutation of the cells in response to the malfunction of circadian rhythm mechanism.
c)alien foreign body take over plot
3. The EMG indicates a need for further study to 1. confirm or deny the reality of the said EGM and 2. confirm the relationship to cluster headaches.
From what I have read, they need a to do pathological studies. Can I assume here that they need the brains of cluster heads for this research. If so, I think I would be willing to make a donation, posthumously of course.
