Study: Menopause, memory loss are connected
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- There are plenty of jokes about the connection between memory loss and menopause, but now there's science to back up the connection.
Researchers at the University of Rochester found women transitioning into menopause showed deterioration in their working memory, which is their ability to take in new information.
Researchers say that essentially means menopausal women don't necessarily have a problem with their memory, but rather the process of registering the information in the first place.
