Research conducted by Pauline Maki confirms that the mental fog of menopause is real.

Hot flashes and poor sleep are well documented physical complaints during menopause, but Maki’s work focuses on the effects of sex hormones and phytoestrogens on cognition, brain function and psychological well being in women of all ages.

Her brain imaging research has led to novel insights into the neural targets of hormone therapy in postmenopausal women. Her research may be used to help doctors individualize hormone therapy for aging women.
