During the past two decades, several studies in females of animal models and human have been performed to unveil the reproductive system changes and the complex interactions with the ovaries. However, morphologic variations in the central nerve system following menopause have not yet been studied. Therefore, this study utilized voxel-based morphormetry (VBM) to evaluate the age-related changes and the effects of menopause on the brain volumes in postmenopausal women.
