EEG markers of migraine in childhood were characterized using computer techniques for harmonic analysis of the EEG during photic stimulation. We examined values of coherence, power in the alpha range, response to photic stimulation and attenuation of power in the alpha range during photic driving. With these data, we were able to discriminate 12 of 13 children with migraine from age-matched controls. We compared our results to previous data with adults and found many properties in the spectral analyses common to both children and adults, but also found a small set of properties unique to children.
