Does estrogen make you "smarter"?

Another curious finding from the media research of Dr. Robert Brueck MD, Fort Myers Cosmetic Surgeon, who blogs here regularly

Apparently, women who have gone through menopause show an increase in gray matter as a result of estrogen therapy.

24 women were studied at Vanderbilt University and the University of Vermont – half got estrogen and half got a placebo (nothing).

Using MRI screening, the women receiving estrogen showed an increased volume of gray matter. Many previous studies confirmed that decreasing levels of estrogen affect visual and verbal memory function.

Think about it.
