Hi folks,
  I was recently at a talk where it was suggested that
estrogen receptors in the brain might play some role
in the pathology of Alzheimer's Disease (AD).  I was curious
whether the role of the estrogen receptors is known
notwithstanding AD.  Are there references anyone could
suggests that discuss what affects the estrogen receptor
has on the functioning of neurons?  
  Again, I appreciate your help.
