N6 - Neuroscience in the Clinic: The Brain Across the Menstrual Cycle

Event Time: Thursday May 9, 2019 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Autoimmune Neurology
Director(s): Riley Bove MD, Temitayo Oyegbile MD, PhD
Description: Women of childbearing potential experience monthly fluctuations across a number of physiological systems. This program will cover what is known about fluctuations in neuronal activity, cell types in the nervous system (immune, glial, endothelial and neuronal), and how these may pertain to fluctuations in neurologic function across the menstrual cycle. The program will draw on examples from multiple sclerosis, headache, sleep, epilepsy, cerebrovascular disease, among other neurologic conditions. The program will also emphasize potential approaches to modulating the effect of these fluctuations, when indicated.
Completion Message: Participants should become familiar with major types of fluctuation in nervous-system related processes across the menstrual cycle.
CME Credits: 2
