November 7, 2007 presentation by Ellie Williams for the Stanford School of Medicine Medcast lecture series.
Twice as many women as men suffer from depression and mood disorders - but only between puberty and menopause. This burden on women in the reproductive years suggests a powerful link between female hormones and brain function. Ellie Williams, MD, associate director of the Center for Neuroscience in Women's Health, discusses this role of hormones in women's mental health.
