We employed a regional homogeneity (ReHo) method to analyze the local features of spontaneous brain activity in 26 patients with migraine without aura and 26 healthy volunteers during the resting state. Patients with migraine without aura showed a significant decrease in ReHo values in the right rostral anterior cingulate cortex (rACC), the prefrontal cortex (PFC), the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) and the supplementary motor area (SMA). In addition, we found that ReHo values were negatively correlated with the duration of disease in the right rACC and PFC.
