 Menopause Linked to Memory Issues

A new study conducted by researchers from University of Rochester in New York revealed that menopause did indeed cause some memory problems.

The researchers analyzed the effect of menopause on 75 participants aged between 40 and 60 years and who underwent a number of cognitive tests.

The researchers found that a number of participants had trouble with their "working memory" which helps us to take in and manipulate new information.

"The most important thing to realize is that there really are some cognitive changes that occur during this phase in a woman's life. If a woman approaching menopause feels she is having memory problems, no one should brush it off or attribute it to a jam-packed schedule. She can find comfort in knowing that there are new research findings that support her experience. She can view her experience as normal", lead researcher Dr Miriam Weber said.
