Abstract

Migraine is a highly disabling disorder of the brain which may affect patients both socially and economically. The pharmaceutical and invasive treatment methods may have undesirable side effects and associated risks. It has recently been shown that transcutaneous supraorbital neuromodulation may suppress episodic migraine attacks. However, results have indicated low efficacy. This inconclusive response may be associated with neuro-anatomical variations in patients which may be investigated using computational models. Model complexity is a limiting factor in implementing such techniques. This paper investigates the effect of model complexity on fiber activation estimates in transcutaneous frontal nerve stimulation. It is shown that the model can be simplified while minimally affecting the outcome.
