With All Due Respect! by Amanda Thebe

Dr. Maki is best known for her contributions to the field of menopause and cognition. A central focus of her research has been the effects of hormone therapy (HT) and alternative treatments for menopausal symptoms on cognition. 


Professor Pauline Maki, co-author of the IMS White Paper, said: “Patients with cognitive complaints at menopause are often concerned about their risk of dementia later in life and it’s important to let them know that memory problems are common during the menopause transition and the large majority of women will not develop dementia” 


In the show today we discuss: 

  • What do we mean by cognitive function and brain fog?  

  • How does cognitive function change in menopause? 

  • What menopause-related factors appear to influence cognition? What role does MHT play?  

  • What other modifiable risk factors influence cognition at midlife? Can we discuss girls/women's education and how that impacts dementia risk?  

  • Cultural differences
