Taking the pill causes structural changes in the brain regions that control memory and emotion.
Women's Brain Health
Most of what we know about health and disease centers on the male body. Neuroscientists have historically overlooked aspects of the human condition relevant to half of the global population: women. We do not know how the menstrual cycle, the pill, pregnancy, menopause affect the anatomy of the brain and correlate with neurodegeneration. How can we explain that close to 70% of Alzheimer's patients are women?
With the Ann S. Bowers Women Brain Health Initiative, we bring our expertise in AI to advance the study of women's brain health.

Computer-assisted diagnosis from two sources: symptoms recorded in a questionnaire, and antigen test.
Computer-aided diagnosis can provide medical diagnoses from brain images and diverse types of medical data. We improve methods of AI-powered clinical diagnostic and:
- integrate heterogeneous sources of information: from biomedical images and shapes to demographic data,
- quantify the uncertainty on the data sources and quantify the confidence of a AI-generated diagnosis.
