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
One of our own @GervNiki will be presenting our work this Tuesday 9 AM at #SfN19 on sleep, memory and brain changes following early surgical menopause. Look for her at the Nanosymposium: Human Brain Mapping and Imaging in Health and Disease: McCormick Place room S402.
Should scores on Mild Cognitive Impairment tests be adjusted for sex? Study finds more women and fewer men are diagnosed when sex-specific scoring is used https://wp.me/p5ewOR-9AZ #brainhealth #sexdifferences #Alzheimers #test #MCI #earlydetection @paulinemmaki @EinsteinLabUofT
Well done to @GervNiki !
#BrainCanada is promoting equity for excellence by funding research projects that take into account sex, gender, and the brain – including on Alzheimer’s. For more information on innovative projects led by Dr. @JeffreyMogil and Dr. @GervNiki: https://bit.ly/2lICeNI
