Washington: In what could revolutionise a woman`s life after her menstruation ceases, scientists have come up with a skin spray of sex hormone testosterone which they claim improves a post-menopausal female`s brain function. Testosterone production declines after menopause, so postmenopausal women usually have half as much the hormone as as younger women. It`s said that postmenopausal women suffer dementia at twice the rate of men due to its lower levels.
"We suspect there could be a strong correlation between low testosterone levels and a decline in female brain function, as has been observed in men, and our findingssupport the need for further research into the potential use of testosterone for prevention of deterioration in brain function and memory," Prof Davis said.The findings were presented at the North American Menopause Society meeting at San Diego in the US this month.
