Hot flushes. Night sweats. Weight gain. Insomnia. These are generally the first things that come to mind when we think about menopause, but did you know that the changes in oestrogen levels during this time also affects cognitive function, memory, and mood as well? Today Emma Sutherland talks with clinical neuropsychologist, researcher, and author Dr Nicola Gates about menopause, particularly the impact oestrogen has on brain function. They discuss the connections between oestrogen on memory and depression, as well as how to support our patients going through this transition, and the value of reframing menopause in a positive light.
