More than just one study has come up with these same finding s in recent years. In fact, Radiology magazine reported on the fact that smaller brains have less tissue on the pain processing portion. This supposedly causes more intense pain.

JAMA also reported another study in 2012 that showed women are more likely to have brain legions if they suffer migraines. These are just a few of the many studies that have been performed involving this common condition that afflicts millions globally.
