When it comes to memory, a new study suggests women remember more than men.
Research published in the journal Menopause looked at more than 200 middle aged men and women.
Women did better than men on all memory measures, but postmenopausal women did not do as well as women before menopause.
The findings showed that as women enter the menopause transition period, they develop increased forgetfulness and "brain fog".
Despite these conditions working against them, middle-aged women still outscore their similarly aged male counterparts on all memory measures, the researchers said.
