#59: The menopause and how the female brain gets stronger and better in midlife with Dr Louann Brizendine

Dr Louann Brizendine MD, completed her degree in Neurobiology at UC Berkeley, graduated from Yale School of Medicine, and did her internship and residency at Harvard Medical School. She has also served on both the faculties of Harvard University and the University of California at San Francisco. She founded the Women’s Mood and Hormone Clinic at UCSF. Her NY Times bestseller: The Female Brain and its follow-up, The Male Brain continue to be read around the world. 

Her new book THE UPGRADE: How the Female Brain Gets Stronger and Better in Midlife and Beyond released on April 19, 2022. Now as the Lynne and Marc Benioff endowed professor of clinical psychiatry at UCSF, Dr Brizendine continues to speak, write, research, and consult.

We cover the following in our conversation:

  • The menopause
  • What happens to the female brain as women transition in their forties, fifties, and sixties?
  • How hormones can be a positive influence on women's cognition, memory and mood.
  • How can women protect themselves from dementia and increased longevity?
  • How do these changes affect a woman's financial life and financial well-being?
  • How can women prepare for the transition so their wellbeing and finances stay on track?
