Handbook of Clinical Neurology: Headache covers various aspects of headaches. It covers up-to-date information about the cultural developments and the scientific advances in the field of neurological science. One of the most frequent symptoms that people encounter is migraine or other type of headaches. At least 40% of neurological consultations are headache-related. With this, significant advances in basic and applied brain sciences have emerged in the field of headache-related problems.

Divided into six sections, the book discusses the socioeconomic aspects of headaches, the contribution of biological sciences to the study of the pathophysiology of headache, and the management of headache and other related problems. It also deals with headache-related issues, such as pathogenic (chronobiological, endocrinological, and neuroimaging correlates), nosographic (i.e., migraine, vertigo, and headache in children), and treatment-related issues.

The book will serve as a reference for researchers, clinical physicians, and other readers who want additional knowledge about the clinical features of headaches.
