Using data from the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation (SWAN), Arun Karlamangla, Gail Greendale and their UCLA colleagues found evidence of cognitive decline in processing speed and memory among midlife women (average age=54). Karlamangla said he thinks the research results should not cause too much worry: “Don’t begin to lose your cool or (get) anxious because you forgot where you left your keys,” he said.
