Abstract. Cortical spreading depression (CSD) is a slowly propagating wave of ionic and metabolic disturbances in cortical brain tissue. In addition to massive cellular depolarization, CSD involves significant changes in tissue perfusion and metabolism. CSD has been linked to migraine with aura, which affects about 20% of the people who suffer from migraine. The t...
