Migraine and cognitive decline

Migraine and migraine medications do not appear to cause cognitive decline, according to a Dutch study just published in Headache.  After 6 years of follow-up there was no difference between those who suffered from migraines and healthy controls.  Taking migraine medications also did not have an effect on cognitive function.  This is very reassuring, especially because a recent study in rats suggested brain damage from what the researchers felt was a process similar to migraine.
