Though migraine is a common childhood disease, there has been relatively little investigation into migraine in children. Here we use resting-state functional connectivity analyses to investigate functional alterations in brain activity in children with migraine. In agreement with the adult literature, we show altered resting-state connectivity in children with migraine compared to healthy controls in areas related to sensory processing.
