Ted talks are this Wednesday, the 18th of May. I have been prepping myself using notecards and doing further research. Some of my research is really technical and talks about the chemicals that interact with headaches and migraines. Dopamine and serotonin are the main chemicals that when found in an abundance could cause migraines. If the blood vessels in your brain are especially sensitive to these chemicals, you may experience headaches. Many people find dopamine repellents a very controversial idea and often mock the people that try to create such products. Another controversial headache reliever that has been tested and works (according to patients) is the use of medically-prescribed marijuana. People say this works to cease headaches, but it could come with side effects. In order to properly inform my audience, I really need to separate opinion from fact. This can be hard when working with online text and websites whose citations are nonexistent or are hard to find.
