How Estrogen Changes Impact Dopamine, Cognition, and Women’s Health

TIME: Thursday, November 18 at 11 am MST

EXPERT:  Jeanette Wasserstein, Ph.D.

“Now what did I come here for? I can’t remember.” This is a proverbial complaint among women living through perimenopause and menopause. This complaint reflects the prevalent occurrence of memory and other cognitive problems, as well as struggles with mood regulation, during menopause.

This webinar discusses estrogen loss during middle age, how it impacts cognition, and how it may either worsen or even “create” ADHD. We also will consider lessening the impact of these changes by using practical strategies and interventions such as pharmacotherapy, psycho-education, and CBT targeted to improve executive functioning.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • The role of estrogen in cognition
  • Cognitive changes during menopause
  • The impact of menopause on ADHD or the development of “pseudo-ADHD”
  • Practical management techniques to help women with ADHD meet the challenges of menopause
