- The spreading of a self-propagating wave of cellular depolarization in the cerebral cortex.
- The spreading of a wave of ischemia passing through an area of cortex.
- The spreading of a wave of vasoconstriction following vasodilation of contiguous cortical arterioles.
The spreading depression wave progresses across the cortex at approximately 3.6 mm/minute.
