We work with groups of women, men and gender-diverse individuals to explore how their brains and behaviour react and respond when they experience sex-specific health conditions, medical treatments or social practices.
Learn more about neuroscience, cognition, gender and health in a collection of videos featuring Dr. Gillian Einstein.

We study how the structure and function of the brain is influenced by the context of people’s lives, especially sex and gender ⚙️🧠🔍 P.I - Dr. Gillian Einstein
Double the number of women suffer from dementia — so why are even the lab rats in brain studies male? For our Prof Gillian Einstein, the problem is more than simply gender balance. https://buff.ly/389eHJd via @nationalpost #health #cdnhealth
Like millions of women, I take a #BirthControl pill everyday. But little is known about how #hormonal #contraceptives affect the #brain & #cognition. Read how the @EinsteinLabUofT is addressing this knowledge gap in the #WomensHealth issue of @IMSMagazine https://tinyurl.com/t8xe9l5
