Women are at an increased risk of dementia. However, the mechanisms underlying this increased risk are unknown. In this work using two separate datasets, we are exploring the links between sex and brain health in people in mid and later life using detailed cognitive tests and brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging scans. This project aims to understand how female sex, menopause and cardiovascular risk factors contribute to brain health.
