Women's risk of Alzheimer's disease and cognitive decline linked to gene sequence

the risk of Alzheimers disease, Yaffe said. We know about several genes that are linked to Alzheimers or appear to be, but its estimated that we have only found about 50 percent of these genetic risk factors, she said.

Previous studies have shown that estrogen and its receptors play a major role in womens brains. We know there are estrogen receptors throughout the brain, particularly in the areas involved in learning and memory, Yaffe said. Also, estrogen therapy after menopause appears to protect women from cognitive decline, she said.
