Menopause and perimenopause are still a black box to most doctors, leaving patients exasperated as they grapple with symptoms ranging from hot flashes to insomnia to brain fog. In her new book, The Menopause Brain, leading neuroscientist and women’s brain health specialist Lisa Mosconi, unravels these mysteries by revealing how menopause doesn’t just impact the ovaries—it’s a hormonal show in which the brain takes center stage.

She will be in conversation with Lisa Genova, Genova graduated valedictorian from Bates College with a degree in biopsychology and has a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Harvard University. She is the New York Times bestselling author of several novels. Genova’s first work of nonfiction, Remember: The Science of Memory and the Art of Forgetting, was an instant New York Times bestseller, and her TED talks on Alzheimer’s and memory have over 11 million views.
