Migraine headaches are those which result from a combination of blood vessel enlargement and the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around these blood vessels. During the headache, any artery enlarges that is located on the outside of the skull just under the skin of the temple (temporal artery). This causes a release of chemicals that cause inflammation pain, and further enlargement of the artery. It is, however, believed to be a neurovascular disorder. The word Ardhavabhedaka is made of two words- Ardha + Bhedhaka. Ardha means half or half part. Bhedaka means vidarana - piercing or breaking. Finally the word Ardhavabhedaka means a piercing or breaking type of pain in half part.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
