Dr. Lise Eliot: How Gender Impacts the Brain and Alzheimer’s Risk

May 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT


Two thirds of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s are women. In addition, research shows that Alzheimer’s biomarker tau protein accumulates differently and more quickly in women’s brains. Researchers like Rosalind Franklin University’s Lise Eliot are investigating how differences in brain structure for men and women are impacting Alzheimer’s risk. On Friday, May 10th, at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, Eliot joins Being Patient Live Talks to discuss these gender differences in the brain and the current research in this space. 

Eliot is a professor of neuroscience in the Chicago Medical School of Rosalind Franklin University. Her research centers on brain and gender development, focusing particularly on the role of neuroplasticity in translating early life experience into neural circuitry. She is the author of two books, What’s Going On in There? How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life (Bantam), and Pink Brain, Blue Brain: How Small Differences Grow Into Troublesome Gaps (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). 

RSVP to this live talk to learn more about gender differences in brain structure and what this means for Alzheimer’s research.

  1. Even when you have early stages of dementia you should make it easier to find and sign in to your presentation. I have be trying for 15 minutes to find were to sign in without any luck. I would have like to have seen this presentation. How about sending a link so I can at least review it after you have presented.
