Estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) may help maintain normal cognitive function. Nondemented surgically menopausal women on ERT (n = 10) enrolled in a longitudinal aging study performed better than age- and education-matched control subjects (n = 25) on selected tests of verbal memory and constructional ability. These results suggest that ERT initiated soon after surgical menopause can have long-term neuroprotective effects in cognitively intact women.
