Book Summary:

The instant New York Times bestseller! "In The XX Brain, Lisa meticulously guides us in the ways we can both nourish and protect ourselves, body and mind, to ensure our brains remain resilient throughout our lives." --from the foreword by Maria Shriver The first book to address cognitive enhancement and Alzheimer's prevention specifically in women--and to frame brain health as an essential component of Women's Health. In this revolutionary book, Dr. Lisa Mosconi, director of the Women's Brain Initiative at Weill Cornell Medical College, provides women with the first plan to address the unique risks of the female brain. Until now, medical research has focused on "bikini medicine," assuming that women are essentially men with breasts and tubes. Yet women are far more likely than men to suffer from anxiety, depression, migraines, brain injuries, and strokes. They are also twice as likely to end their lives suffering from Alzheimer's disease, even when their longer lifespans are taken into account. But in the past, the female brain has received astonishingly little attention and was rarely studied by medical researchers-- resulting in a wealth of misinformation about women's health. The XX Brain confronts this crisis by revealing how the two powerful X chromosomes that distinguish women from men impact the brain first and foremost and by focusing on a key brain-protective hormone: estrogen. Taking on all aspects of women's health, including brain fog, memory lapses, depression, stress, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, and the increased risk of dementia, Dr. Mosconi introduces cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches to protecting the female brain, including a specific diet proven to work for women, strategies to reduce stress, and useful tips for restorative sleep. She also examines the controversy about soy and hormonal replacement therapy, takes on the perils of environmental toxins, and examines the role of our microbiome. Perhaps best of all, she makes clear that it is never too late to take care of yourself. The XX Brain is a rallying cry for women to have full access to information regarding what is going on in their brains and bodies as well as a roadmap for the path to optimal, lifelong brain health.

If you'd like to purchase the original book, please paste this link in your browser: https://amzn.to/2JB5Zsm In The XX Brain, Lisa Mosconi reveals the intricate workings of the female brain and why women are becoming more vulnerable to neurological diseases than men. She explains how understanding female hormones is the key to helping women resolve many of their health issues and live long, healthy lives well past menopause. What does this SNAP Summary Include? - Synopsis of the original book - Key takeaways from each chapter - How hormonal changes trigger Alzheimer's and other neurological diseases - Tools and strategies women can use to improve their brain health - Editorial Review - Background on Lisa Mosconi About the Original Book: When it comes to aging, society puts more pressure on women than men. Yet even as we become obsessed with staying youthful, there seems to a lack of serious conversation regarding brain health in women. Scientific research has been dominated by men, and the common assumption has been that whatever works for men will work for women. New research shows that this not the case. The female brain is unique in the way it processes information and responds to the environment. The XX Brain is Lisa Mosconi’s attempt to demystify the female brain and explain what women need to do to prevent neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Book Summary:

Women are far more likely than men to suffer from anxiety, depression, migraines, brain injuries, strokes and Alzheimer's disease. But, until recently, scientific research has focused on 'bikini medicine,' assuming that women are essentially men with different reproductive organs. The XX Brain presents groundbreaking research showing that women's brains age distinctly from men's, due mostly to the decline of a key brain-protective hormone: estrogen. Taking on all aspects of women's health, including brain fog, memory lapses, depression, stress, insomnia, hormonal imbalances and the increased risk of dementia, Dr. Mosconi introduces cutting-edge, evidence-based methods for protecting the female brain, encompassing diet, stress reduction and sleep. She also examines the effectiveness of hormonal replacement therapy, addresses the perils of environmental toxins and explores the role of our microbiome. Luckily, it is never too late to take care of yourself.

Book Summary:

How to eat for maximum brainpower and health, from an expert in both neuroscience and nutrition. "Powerful advice on how to eat for maximum brainpower." --Mark Hyman, MD, New York Times--bestselling author of Eat Fat, Get Thin In this eye-opening book, Dr. Lisa Mosconi, a neuroscientist and integrative nutritionist, explains why the dietary needs of the brain are different from those of other organs. Her innovative approach to cognitive health encompasses a complete food plan, including comprehensive lists of what to eat and what to avoid as well as information to help you determine where you are on the brain-health spectrum. Brain Food can help improve memory, prevent cognitive decline, eliminate brain fog, and lift depression. "Incredible." --Maria Shriver "This fascinating book not only reveals the science behind neuro-nutrition, it shows us what we could be eating for maximum brain power." --Sara Gottfried, MD, New York Times-bestselling author of Younger, The Hormone Reset Diet, and The Hormone Cure "An empowering resource for anyone who wants to take their brain health into their own hands (and spoons and forks)." --Kelly McGonigal, PhD, author of The Willpower Instinct, The Upside of Stress, and The Joy of Movement

Book Summary:

Biologic sex matters in aging and neurodegeneration. A female advantage in lifespan is seen in humans and throughout the animal kingdom, and men and women suffer differing vulnerabilities to age-related neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer's disease (AD). More women suffer from AD, largely due to their longevity, as AD risk is highest in advanced age. In contrast, men with the disease die faster in populations worldwide and show greater cognitive deficits. We show the contribution of sex chromosome complement to these observations, in particular, the importance of the X chromosome. Using genetically modified mice we demonstrate (Chapter 2) that having XX sex chromosome complement increases survival during aging in male and female mice. We also show that XX sex chromosome complement in combination with ovaries extends lifespan. We go on to show (Chapter 3) that having two X chromosomes decreased mortality and conferred resilience to AD-related vulnerability in mice expressing the human amyloid precursor protein (hAPP). We then investigated how a second X chromosome can confer resilience against AD-related deficits. While XY and XX organisms express only one active X due to X chromosome inactivation (XCI), a few factors escape XCI and therefore are higher in females compared to males. One of these genes, Kdm6a, escapes in both mice and humans and is a histone demethylase linked to cognitive functions. We thus determined whether higher levels of Kdm6a - as found in the XX brain - could counter AD-related vulnerability in the XY brain. We first confirmed that the presence of a second X chromosome increased levels of Kdm6a in mouse hippocampus; it did so independent of gonadal phenotype or the presence of a Y chromosome. We then used lentiviral vectors in mice to modulate Kdm6a expression in vivo and in vitro. Overexpression of Kdm6a in the hippocampus of XY hAPP mice to higher levels observed in XX hAPP mice attenuated spatial learning and memory deficits in the Morris water maze. Similarly, overexpression of Kdm6a in XY primary neurons decreased AÎø toxicity in vitro. Furthermore, knockdown of Kdm6a in XX neurons to levels observed in XY neurons worsened AÎø toxicity in vitro. Finally, in humans, genetic variation in KDM6A was linked to higher brain expression and associated with less cognitive decline in aging and preclinical AD, suggesting relevance to human brain health. Our findings highlight the importance of sex chromosomes in aging and disease, as well as reveal a role for the baseline XCI escapee Kdm6a in countering AD-related deficits.

Book Summary:

Peripheral hormones have a major impact on the brain: they are able to interfere with its development, to affect release of neurotransmitters and concentrations of receptors, to trigger growth factors involved in lesion repair. These multiple actions account for their capacity to modulate a number of physiological parameters, from reproductive functions to memory, behavior and aging. This book based on contributions of pioneer investigators in the field, outlines the role of hormones in pathogenic processes such as mental disturbances or neurodegenerative diseases.
