Does memory become worse during menopause?

According to a study of 803 women aged 40 to 55 years who were tested annually for loss of brain function over the course of six years, transition through menopause is not accompanied by a decline in working memory and perceptual speed. Peter M. Meyer, MD, of the Department of Preventative Medicine, Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center, Chicago, IL, led the study of randomly selected African American and white women from two Chicago communities. It was the first longitudinal study to track cognitive performance during the menopausal transition.

A related "Patient Page" article on menopause and brain function discusses the study findings and offers recommendations for improving memory. The Patient Page will be available at www.Neurology.org or can be obtained in advance from AAN Media Relations staff.
