Women, Menopause and Alzheimer’s: XX Brain Connections with Lisa Mosconi, Ph.D. : 675

Bulletproof Radio
Episode artwork
Read more

My guest today is a neuroscientist and neuro-nutritionist recognized and respected for her contributions to the fields of brain science, the microbiome, and nutritional genomics. 

Dr. Lisa Mosconi is the founder and director of the Women's Brain Initiative and associate director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. She’s also an associate professor of neuroscience in neurology and radiology at Weill Cornell and an adjunct faculty member at New York University’s Department of Psychiatry.

Her current scientific work focuses on the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease in at-risk people, particularly women. More than a decade of research has shown two things, Dr. Mosconi says: “No. 1, Alzheimer's Disease is not a disease of old age, but rather the disease starts with negative changes in the brain years—if not decades—before any clinical symptoms emerge. So, we're looking at midlife, rather than when you're 70 or 80. No. 2, women tend to develop these negative changes in their brains before men do, and specifically as women go through menopause. That was a big finding.”

“Menopause symptoms don't start in the ovaries,” she says, “they start in the brain.” That’s why Dr. Mosconi uses brain imaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). 

She is passionately interested in how risk of memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease can be mitigated, if not prevented, through the combination of appropriate medical care and lifestyle modifications involving diet, nutrition, physical and intellectual fitness. She details this in her new book, “The XX Brain: The Groundbreaking Science Empowering Women to Maximize Cognitive Health and Prevent Alzheimer's Disease.”

Dr. Mosconi’s research into women’s neurological health is changing the way science approaches the female brain.

#96: Why Women Are Twice As Likely to Develop Alzheimer’s and What They Can Do About It with Dr. Lisa Mosconi

Broken Brain with Dhru Purohit
Episode artwork
Read more

Alzheimer’s is not a disease of old age. We tend to associate it with the elderly because that’s when the clinical symptoms become manifest, but in reality, Alzheimer’s begins with negative changes in the brain at least a decade prior. More often than not, in middle age.

Two out of every three Alzheimer’s patients are women. Today, Alzheimer’s is as real a threat to women's health as breast cancer is. A 45-year-old woman has a one in five chance of developing Alzheimer’s during her remaining life, while a man of the same age only has a one in ten chance. What happens to women and not to men, in midlife, that could potentially trigger an Alzheimer’s predisposition, and that could potentially initiate Alzheimer’s? 

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. Lisa Mosconi, the director of the Women's Brain Initiative and associate director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College, where she serves as an associate professor of neuroscience in neurology and radiology. In addition, she is an adjunct faculty member at the NYU Department of Psychiatry and the author of Brain Food and The XX Brain.

In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Mosconi talk about the research on why women represent two thirds of the Alzheimer’s population. They discuss what happens to a woman’s brain when she goes through menopause, and the connection to Alzheimer’s disease. They also talk about how to care for women’s brains, how to prevent dementia, and the ground-breaking research that Dr. Mosconi and her team are conducting at the Alzheimer’s prevention clinic.

In this episode, we dive into:

-The statistics on Alzheimer’s disease and its impact on women (7:18)

-Dr. Mosconi’s family history of Alzheimer’s (10:52)

-The difference between the male and female brain (17:55)

-The early changes we are seeing in the female brain midlife (21:54)

-What is happening in the brain post-menopause for women (24:12)

-The correlation between a hysterectomy and a higher risk of dementia (28:38)

-The impact of diet on our hormones and brain health (30:21)

-What women can do to prevent dementia (41:32) 

-Why women internalize stress more than men (49:44)

-How toxins impact our risk of chronic diseases (57:42)

-How to know if hormone replacement therapy is right for you (1:29:09)

-Where to learn more about Dr. Lisa Mosconi (1:37:16)

Discovering the Link Between Menopause and Alzheimer’s with Dr. Lisa Mosconi

Ask The Health Expert
Episode artwork
Read more

World-renowned neuroscientist and neuro-nutritionist Dr. Lisa Mosconi joins JJ today as they discuss a vitally important topic: women’s brain health. Women's brains age distinctly from men's, due in large part to the decline of a key brain-protective hormone: estrogen. Dr. Lisa and JJ discuss the roles of estrogen in the body and the brain, as well as the connection between menopause and the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Many factors contribute to risk for Alzheimer’s, but a lot of them boil down to inflammation, and adjusting lifestyle can help reduce the risk. JJ and Dr. Lisa also discuss foods that are harmful and foods that are helpful in reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Main Points From Today’s Episode

  1. Women’s brains are very different from men’s. One interesting way is that women’s brains age differently.
  2. Menopause has a huge impact on the brain. Symptoms associated with menopause don’t start in your ovaries, they start in your brain.
  3. Alzheimer’s disease is caused by many factors. Many of them can be improved by adjusting diet and lifestyle now.

Though it may seem like common sense, like our bodies, our brains have very specific food requirements. In Dr. Lisa Mosconi’s book “Brain Food: The Surprising Science of Eating for Cognitive Power,” the neuroscientist and integrative nutritionist proposes a complete food plan, while calling out health trends, including why that paleo diet you are following may not be ideal, why avoiding gluten could be a terrible mistake and how simply getting enough water can dramatically improve alertness. Join us for a conversation with Dr. Mosconi on the link between what you eat and how you feel, in this installment of “Leonard Lopate at Large” on WBAI.

Episode 80: Dr. Lisa Mosconi

The Empowering Neurologist Podcast

Read more

Today’s interview is with Lisa Mosconi, PhD. She is the associate director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at Weil Cornell Medical College in New York. Prior to that she served as the director of the Nutrition and Brain Fitness Lab at New York University, School of Medicine.

Dr. Mosconi holds a dual PhD degree in neuroscience as well as nuclear medicine from the University of Florence, Italy, and is board-certified in integrative nutrition.

I think will really enjoy this interview and learn about her new book, Brain Food, which not only looks at nutrition but also leverages the science of nutritional genomics, and even the emerging science relating to the role of the microbiome in brain health. The book provides recommendations that we can all use with respect to the foods we eat and, interestingly, she does challenge some of our long-held notions.

I hope you enjoy this discussion.
