After viewing dynamic noise surrounding a homogeneous grey patch (artificial scotoma), observers perceive a prolonged twinkling-noise after-image within the unstimulated area. It has been suggested that noise-stimulated neurons induce a long-range inhibition in neurons within the artificial scotoma, which generates a rebound signal perceived as twinkling noise following noise termination. We used this paradigm to test whether migraineurs have enhanced excitability or weakened inhibition.
