For Dr. Gillian Einstein, it's ..., 30 Sept 2013 [cached]
For Dr. Gillian Einstein, it's a thrill to know her work on women's brain health will help people make more informed decisions about their bodies.
"It's really what I always wanted to do. I always wanted to work on scientific problems that would make a difference," she says.
Einstein is an Associate Professor with the University of Toronto's Department of Psychology and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health. She is also the Director of the Collaborative Graduate Program in Women's Health.
But, Einstein explains, there can be other consequences.
Earlier research has found that women who've had their ovaries removed faced a higher incidence of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's dementias than women who still had their ovaries.
Now, Einstein is trying to find out why.
Einstein expects to have some definitive results by the end of 2014.
The project will soon allow Einstein to recruit women prior to their surgeries, and to test them before and after the operation as well as a few years later. This will establish better benchmarks by which to compare the results. Einstein will also be collaborating with the Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest to do brain imaging as part of her research.
"I'd very much like women who are electing to have ovaries removed - for very good reasons I might add - to have a full sense of what is going to follow," says Einstein. "They should know that while it will decrease their risk of ovarian cancer, there may also be some cognitive declines."
She adds that removing the ovaries can also have implications for bone and heart health, as well as the immune system. Einstein's hope is for women and doctors appreciate that removing the ovaries doesn't only affect the reproductive system, but the entire body.
"Estrogen is an incredible molecule, and it does amazing things in both men and women's bodies," says Einstein.

From my perspective, the Womens Health Initiative study deserves a really hard look again, says University of Toronto neuroscientist Gillian Einstein.
For one, Einstein says, the study largely utilized a horse estrogen and a synthetic progesterone hormone replacements that many in the neuroscience community say are not the appropriate and most effective forms of treatment for humans.
She also says the drugs may have been given to many study subjects at inappropriate ages, too far into their postmenopausal stages to have reaped the optimal and safe benefits of HRT.
Einsteins biggest concern, however, is that the rapid migration of the 2002 studys negative HRT finings into the medical cannon has thrown a pall over further and needed research into hormone replacements.
Its raised ethical question about doing research on humans with hormones, says Einstein, chair of the gender and health advisory board at the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
