For women, understanding how the brain works during the key stages of life in utero, childhood, puberty and adolescence, pregnancy and motherhood, menopause and old age is essential to their health.

Dr Sarah McKay is a neuroscientist who knows everything worth knowing about women's brains, and shares it in this fascinating, essential book.

Understanding how the brain grows and changes through the stages of life is key to health and wellbeing. This is not a book about the differences between male and female brains, nor a book using neuroscience to explain gender-specific behaviours, the 'battle of the sexes' or 'Mars-Venus' stereotypes. This is a book about what happens inside the brains and bodies of women as they move through the phases of life, and the unique - and often misunderstood - effects of female biology and hormones.

Dr McKay give insights into brain development during infancy, childhood and the teenage years (including the onset of puberty) and also takes a look at mental health as well as the ageing brain. The book weaves together findings from the research lab, case studies and interviews with neuroscientists and other researchers working in the disciplines of neuroendocrinology, brain development, brain health and ageing.

This comprehensive guide explores the brain during significant life stages, including:

  • In utero
  • Childhood
  • Puberty 
  • The Menstrual Cycle
  • The Teenage Brain 
  • Depression and Anxiety 
  • Pregnancy and Motherhood 
  • Menopause 
  • The Ageing Brain
