Dear fellow sufferers and science enthusiasts,
I coincidentally found a researcher whose primary research interest is the effects of hormonal withdrawal and its effects on the brain, mitochondria, metabolism.
“My primary research interest is to assess the impact of hormonal withdraw on the brain during life span, and how this might be a risk factor for development of mitochondrial-related diseases. Reduced hormonal levels in the brain are associated with a dysregulation in lipid metabolism, and this pathophysiology may account for an increased neuroimmune response in the brain of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s patients, and this response is dependent on the sex. More importantly, sex differences on glial cells have been also observed, and these cells might be as important as neurons for brain homeostasis. My interests also include addressing neuroprotection by androgens/estrogens in brain diseases”
As far as I can see he was so far looking mostly into post-menopausal changes. PFS, PSSD could be a good model for a male equivalent.
When approaching this scientist I would like to add some PFS, PSSD related studies on how changes in neurosteroids and sex hormones may change the brain, mitochondria, lead to metabolic diseases and brain disorders.
If you have any study references that would be of interest to him, please feel free to add them here, so that I can integrate them.
