From the authors: "Two common [hormone therapy] regimens differentially alter pituitary-ovarian hormone levels, altering feedback cycles and interhormonal associations in recently menopausal women. These interactions provide the basis for future studies investigating the impact of hormonal modulation of aging, including cognitive decline in women."

This study is highlighted as one of January's "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
