A group of postmenopausal women were given estrogen pills and others received placebos. Tests showed those taking the estrogen performed as if they were much younger. These women had changes in their brain memory circuits that were visible on M-R-I scans. If these initial results hold up under repeated testing, then eventually estrogen will be tested to see if it could improve memory.
