have they managed to find 68 women who are not hormonally modified? and which control group?
the problem with media-logic is that its propaganda
at least a snap-bit of intended meaning is supposed to stick
closeread, nothing in it but dragging other suggestions into it
oh and graphs, what more to stun the pops
hardly you find a graph that says anything or is explained or used accordingly, in general,
in this article its decorative,

" Unfortunately, findings in this field are often inconclusive or contradictory. For example, it has been found that oestrogen can influence aspects of cognition, such as working memory and attention, with some studies suggesting that higher levels of oestrogen can lead to poor cognitive performance, while others have suggested that high oestrogen levels are associated with improved cognitive functioning. Why these results are inconsistent is not clear. However, when the vast range of chemical systems that oestrogen interacts with in the brain are considered, it’s perhaps not surprising that the relationship between the menstrual cycle and cognition is complex."

let's put 'personality' ?? in the mix

"In a different study, we investigated the effect of oestrogen on memory in people with a specific set of personality traits. These traits included being easily distracted, often daydreaming and being confused when several things happen at once."

"Participants completed a task designed to create false memories (memories of an event that didn’t occur)." :skull:

"It appeared that the effect of oestrogen on memory and cognition may differ depending on the personality of the participant."

mission complete, but if the reporting message sticks, that's better

Hormone withdrawl can affect mood and cognition. The extent to which women are affected, however, is debatable and probably varies from woman to woman. I suspect this is less often an issue in normal healthy women and that women who are more prone to this do not have optimal hormone levels to begin with.

I should also state, medical science used to also believe that menstrual cramps were psychological. Of course this was the testament of men who had never experienced menstrual cramps. Had they been able to, they would not have made what would have been an obviously ridiculous claim.

Ah, :lol: so that also means when I'm eating something that would make me go hyperactive, it means it shouldn't make me hyperactive as my aptitude wasn't affected? That I purposely become more social and less attentive?

Or in case of discomfort, that it didn't mattered? Like any emotions and sensations, physiological, psychological, or otherwise shouldn't matter?? :lmao: As it's not supposed to affect cognition and decision making?? Along with behavior, mood, and attitude??


LOL I WISH!!.. :x

Really? You try concentrating and mulit tasking with cramps in your abdomen and all down your legs with a headache and uncomfortably swollen breasts whilst overheating and feeling woozy.

Being pregnant can also be rather punishing.

According to a comic strip I just read, if the uterus fails to conceive a child, it feels such shame and dishonor that it commits Seppuku with a tiny Samurai sword, and that's what causes the cramps and bleeding. 8O
