Overview

This webinar examines the neurobiology of depression and mood disorders during the menopause transition and later life. Presenters will share research findings on the role of stressful life events and transdermal estradiol administration on depressive symptoms, including irritability and anxiety, the role of circadian rhythm and sleep changes, and their treatment with sleep and light interventions in mood disorders. In addition, findings on anhedonia and depression in women in later life are examined.
