About the Lab

Todd J. Schwedt, M.D., and Catherine D. Chong, Ph.D. during a functional MRI experiment.

The Neuroimaging of Headache Disorders Laboratory of Todd J. Schwedt, M.D., at Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix, Arizona, integrates multimodal neuroimaging with patient symptoms to better understand the neurobehavioral complexities of migraine and other headache disorders.

Specifically, the aim is to localize the neural correlates of the pain and associated symptoms of migraine and other headache disorders and to investigate the neuroimaging commonalities and differences among these headache disorders. The laboratory utilizes computational modeling techniques that enable the classification of specific headache disorders based upon structural and functional brain magnetic resonance imaging data.
