Certain reproductive events, such as early menstruation, early menopause, and hysterectomy were linked to an increased risk of a woman developing dementia later in life. Women who experienced pregnancy or who entered into menopause later were at a lower risk for dementia.
According to a new study, amyloid deposition is reduced in newly postmenopausal women who received a estrogen replacement therapy.
Study reports a link between levels of GlycA, an inflammatory molecule in the blood, and an increased risk of depression symptoms. Researchers also outline specific symptoms associated with menopause and an increased likelihood of developing depression.
Despite previous claims, new research finds there is no link between menopausal women taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and an increased risk of developing dementia.
Researchers have discovered a connection between a lack of ovarian hormones and changes in the nucleus accembens following menopause.
Mouse study identifies specific neurons and a signaling pathway to regions of the hindbrain that mediate sexual reproductive activity and physical activity that appear to influence activity behaviors during ovulation. The findings may provide valuable insights into how estrogen loss during menopause disrupts this activity.
By inducing hot flashes, most commonly associated with menopause, in both male and female mice, researchers discover Kiss1 neurons initiate a fast boost in skin temperature followed by a drop in core body temperature.
A new study reveals our longevity and sexual maturity are governed by our brains, not our bodies. Researchers discovered that animals with more neurons in the cerebral cortex live longer, regardless of their body size.
Taking higher doses of vitamin D supplements can help improve memory and learning, but negatively impacts reaction time in postmenopausal women with a higher BMI. Researchers suggest the slowed reaction times may contribute to an increased risk of falls in older people.
A new study reports diets high in refined carbohydrates could increase the risk for developing depression in postmenopausal women.
