As I have anticipated last week (have a look here to figure out some of the new therapeutic targets for migraine), the main character of my master thesis in Neurobiology is the kynurenic acid (KYNA), one of the neuroactive compounds produced during the metabolism of tryptophan, an amino acid used in the biosynthesis of proteins.… Continue reading How did I study the effects of KYNA on migraine?
