Title: Estrogen and Cognition: The Greatest Story Never Told
Ebbinghaus Empire Series 2015-2016
Abstract: The role of estrogens in reproductive behaviour has been well-documented since the time of Beach (within the larger context of studying reproductive sex differences). It has proved more difficult, however, to determine estrogens' role in mediating cognitive behaviours and brain response, in both experimental and clinical studies. In this talk, after reviewing some known CNS estrogenic effects, I will summarize our investigations of what is known about estrogens' effects on somatosensation and chronic pain, present our data on estrogens and mood, and describe our ongoing studies of the effects of estrogens on memory.
