After these findings, it has been said that the cause of interictal neuro-otological insufficiency in migraine patients is impaired oculomotor function due to vestibulocerebellar. Parallel to these results, Salhofer has stated that there can be various balance disorders from imbalance to vertigo in migraine patients, and in VM patients it has been defined that the frequent feeling of fall because of the intensified vertigo (32).
These structures received excitatory input either from the spinal cord via the spinocerebellar tract, the inferior olive nucleus via the olivocerebellar tract, the vestibular nucleus via vestibulocerebellar tract and the pons via pontocerebellar tract.
These include, but are not limited to, exciting spinoreticular pathways and dorsal column pathways to the PMRF, modulation of vestibulosympathetic pathways and vestibulocerebellar activation of the nucleus tractus solitarius, dorsal motor nucleus of vagus, and nucleus ambiguous.
