Splitting: The inside story on headaches - why we get them, what they tell us, and what we can do [9781472971418]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Written by a leading neuroscientist, Splitting tells the fascinating true story about headaches, and the secrets they reveal about your brain and overall health.

Did you know...

- that chocolate doesn't give you a headache - and may in fact prevent one happening?

- that 30% of us sneeze at sunlight?

- that you can see off a headache with an orgasm?

- or that you shouldn't wear a striped top if your spouse gets migraines?

From migraines to sinus pain to tension headaches - and everything in between - Splitting separates fact from fiction, putting you in control and helping you practise habits that will protect you from headache.

AUTHOR: Professor Amanda Ellison is a physiologist and neuroscientist at Durham University. Her wide-ranging research has thrown new light on addiction, pain, and headache in particular, and her work on how different parts of the brain talk to each other has led to new ways to regain functions lost following brain damage. She is the director of an outreach programme targeting schools, patient groups, and the wider public, and is passionate about improving lives through the sharing of scientific and wider academic knowledge.

Professor Ellison has commented on various issues in the media most notably the phenomenon of man flu, and whether beer goggles really exist.
