Psychological tests were conducted on menopausal women ovariectomized women and women receiving estrogen replacement therapy. There were no differences in cognitive and attention variables between those subjects receiving estrogens and those who were not. However those not receiving estrogens felt that their memory attention and ability to concentrate was impaired to a greater degree than reported by those receiving therapy. The ovariectomized group showed the greatest d ecline in feeling of…

Findings suggest that estrogen deficiency should be treated to restore somatic mental and social well-being.
Estrogen and Cognitive Functioning in Women

TLDR
The specificity of the estrogenic effect on cognitive functions is consistent with known sex differences in cognitive abilities and suggests that, in adulthood, estrogen serves to activate neural pathways established under the influence of this steroid hormone during prenatal life.
Clinical Pharmacology and Differential Cognitive Efficacy of Estrogen Preparations
TLDR
Basic clinical pharmacology of various forms of estrogen, neuroendocrinology of the menopause, neurobiology of estradiol and estrone, and results of selected basic science and human intervention studies with relevance to identifying the best form and route of administration of estrogen are discussed.
Cognitive function effects of suppressing ovarian hormones in young women
TLDR
This study did not find any effect of suppression in ovarian hormones on cognitive performance of young women.
Estrogenic Effects on Memory in Women a

TLDR
There is no reason to believe that verbal memory is truly impaired in women during phases of the menstrual cycle marked by low levels of estrogen, and there is some preliminary evidence that progesterone may enhance visual-spatial skills in women but this needs to be confirmed.
Estrogen replacement therapy and longitudinal decline in visual memory
TLDR
It is suggested that ERT may protect against memory decline in nondemented postmenopausal women and offer further support for a beneficial role of estrogen on cognitive function in aging women.

Effects of estrogen therapy on plasma MAO activity and EEG driving responses of depressed women.
TLDR
The authors report that premenopausal depressed women with regular menstrual cycles have higher levels of plasma MAO activity and greater EEG responses to photic stimulation than do nondepressed women, interpreted as evidence of adrenergic insufficiency.

TLDR
Discovery of the estrogenic hormone of the ovary and, more recently, the commercial production of more potent preparations of estrogen are radically changing the physician's point of view.
