Menstrual Cramps May Alter Women's Brains
Date:8/11/2010

ruation, is the most common gynecological disorder in women of childbearing age, according to background information in the article.

Karen J. Berkley, a professor emeritus of neuroscience and psychology at Florida State University, said menstrual pain is too often not taken seriously.

"This is one of the first groups to call attention to menstrual cramps, the fact that the condition can have an impact on women's lives, and it's accompanied by changes in brain anatomy and function," Berkley said.

Previously, the Taiwanese team reported that women suffering from menstrual cramps also have differences in brain activity as seen by positron emission tomography, another type of brain scan.

"Taken together, those two studies point to the fact that this continual cyclical pain in women is not unimportant," Berkley said. "
