Migraine and Headache Pathophysiology clearly succeeds in its stated aim to provide "an overview of current and accepted methodologies for the experimental study" of headache disorders. The book is well organized, proceeding from relevant anatomical and pharmacological reviews to experimental headache models in animals and humans. The information presented is up-to-date and not readily found in other sources. Although they write well, some of the authors assume the readers are familiar with the techniques and the language of basic science research. The illustrations, photomicrographs, and tables are high quality and enhance the text.
