What Causes Migraines?

Credit: TED-Ed/YouTube

A throbbing, pounding headache. Bright zigzagging lines across your field of vision. Sensitivity to light, lingering fatigue, disrupted sleep.

While an incapacitating headache is one of the most common symptoms, a migraine can include any of these experiences. So what exactly is a migraine? And what causes it? Marianne Schwarz explores what we know 
– and don't know – about this complex disorder.

Lesson by Marianne Schwarz, directed by Bálint Gelley, CUB Animation.
