Why We Like This Video:

Cognitive health has connections to many different kinds of health. For women, the reproductive system is highly connected to the brain. With age for both sexes, the balance of hormones changes as do neural connections within the brain. Lifestyle changes throughout the lifespan such as diet and exercise can help maintain and improve whole body health. Because men’s and women’s bodies are different, healthcare providers and researchers should consider the different and similar needs between the sexes.
