Cognitive changes and mood instability are common symptoms described by
menopausal women, the degree to which the decay in estrogen production is
responsible is not yet clear. Several lines of evidence suggest that estrogen
may produce its effects on cognition and mood through variation of serotonergic
function. To test this hypothesis, we used the tryptophan depletion (TD)
paradigm to lower central serotonin levels and pharmacologically manipulated
estrogen levels in healthy menopausal women. We examined the individual and
combined effects of estradiol and serotonin on working memory, emotion
processing and task-related brain activation. Eight healthy predominantly early
postmenopausal women underwent TD or sham depletion followed by functional
magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) both before and after short-term transdermal
estradiol 75-150 ug/d administrationThese results provide preliminary evidence
that serotonergic effects directly mediate the impact of estrogen on brain
activation during working memory and affective processing.
