Experts who analysed 679 over-65s found the link was strongest for Alzheimer’s disease.

Prof Suzanne Tyas, from Canada’s University of Waterloo, said: “We don’t yet have any way to cure Alzheimer’s, so prevention is key.


“Identifying a link to migraines provides us with a rationale to guide new strategies to prevent Alzheimer’s disease.”

Prof Tyas said they could include more intensive screening of migraine sufferers to check degeneration in brain function.

She added: “Identifying a midlife risk factor, such as migraines, enables earlier detection of at-risk individuals.”
