Obesity, but not overweight, is associated with poorer working memory in women.
Epidemiologic data indicate that shorter sleep duration (≤5 hours per night) is associated with lower bone mineral density in postmenopausal women.
Fremanezumab was found to be effective and well-tolerated in patients with migraine who have failed to respond to prior preventive treatment.
Sleep disturbance may be associated with reduced improvements in pain interference and pain severity in patients with chronic pain, regardless of whether they are treated with opioids.
Lipophilic angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers may effectively reduce migraine frequency.
Researchers have proposed an update to the International Classification of Headache Disorders-3 criteria for headache attributed to transient ischemic attacks.
CNTX-6016, a highly-selective cannabinoid receptor type 2 agonist, was found to provide adequate analgesia in preclinical models of neuropathic pain.
A significantly increased stroke risk was identified following left atrial appendage electrical isolation; however, the risk could be reduced by oral anticoagulation or placement of a left atrial appendage occlusion device.
The use of a smartphone-based progressive muscle relaxation was found to be associated with a reduction in monthly headache days and depression scores in patients with migraine.

The level of α-syn heteroaggregates in red blood cells may be a tool for the diagnostic work-up in early Alzheimer disease diagnosis.
Women with Alzheimer disease have higher levels of brain metabolism compared with men, which may contribute to their superior verbal memory performance at various disease stages.
Findings reinforce the importance of primary prevention of cardiovascular disease in people living with HIV.
A history of migraine in postmenopausal women may not be linked to an increased risk for stroke, myocardial infarction, or composite cardiovascular disease events.
Treatment with monthly subcutaneous injections of galcanezumab 300 mg may not be effective for reducing weekly chronic cluster headache attack frequency.
Elevated lipoprotein(a) and corresponding LPA genotypes are also associated with an increased risk for ischemic stroke, although the incremental risk is less pronounced.

Achieving greater occipital nerve block in patients with chronic migraines was found to be comparably effective using a proximal or a distal ultrasound-guided technique.
Treatment with erenumab was associated with improved health-related quality of life, headache impact, and disability in patients with chronic migraine.
The use of novel waveforms, frequencies, and stimulation modes in spinal cord stimulation (SCS) therapies may be more effective at relieving chronic low back pain and/or leg pain compared with traditional tonic low-frequency SCS.
A structured medical management program was found to improve outcomes in patients with trigeminal neuralgia after 2 years.
The demographic characteristics and migraine diagnosis of pediatric patients with headache were found to be associated with the use of evidence-based medicine and prescriptions for opioids and barbiturates as first-line treatment.
