Cold Stimulation of Palate
The authors concluded that the study confirmed "that cold stimulation
of the palate induced by gobbling ice cream more than doubles the
likelihood of developing ice cream headache..."
Whereas cold stimluation via ice cream gobbling was associated with double
the headache potential, the role of palate exposure was not disclosed in
experimental method or refernce and the word "palate" appeared only this
Why do the authors feel palate exposure was the effective means - esp. in
contrast or in addition to exposure of cheek, tongue, throat, lips, gum,
tooth or undiscovered wads of chewing gum?
