The mechanisms of generation of extra-intracranial interaction of the excitation processes in the Central nervous system on models of migraine in animals were studied and described in this article. There was described the possible mechanism of relationship between migraine and cervicogenic headache. Recently there was developed innovative drug on the base of botulinum toxin A, and it was described the mechanism of its assembly and therapeutic effect. Also we have provided an overview of modern anti-migraine drugs.
