A Durham University study has asserted that with the help of the hormonal therapy, brain could be made younger and also risk of having strokes could be cut.
The research was carried out on postmenopausal women receiving hormone therapy (HT). It found that the use of drugs by the postmenopausal women helped in making their brains work like that of younger women.
The findings of the study funded by the German Research Foundation appeared in the academic journal Hormones and Behavior.
In the study, women were asked to perform tasks involving fine motor co-ordination. During that it was discovered that the left and right sides of their brain functioned in a better coordinated manner in comparison to the women, who were not undergoing hormonal therapy. The activity exhibited by the brains of women receiving HT was similar to younger women, in whom the sex hormones release naturally.
"Sex hormones are powerful in changing the way the brain is organised and can affect not only sexual and reproductive behaviour but also cognitive functioning", said Dr. Markus Hausmann, the lead researcher.
The outcomes of the study, throws light on the impact of sex hormones on the brain. But, still there is a need of more researches to be done in this context to know its influence on tasks women carry out in routine life.
