Associations of endogenous 17-β-estradiol with theta amplitude and performance in semantic categorization in young women.

Brötzner CP, Klimesch W, Kerschbaum HH - Neuroscience (2014)

Bottom Line: We identified parameters associated or not associated with menstrual cycle phases.Irrespective of the menstrual cycle phase, women (1) responded faster to living items as well as to nouns characterized by many features compared to non-living items and items characterized by few features, (2) showed higher accuracy to non-living items and items having many features, and (3) showed negative correlation between response time (RT) and theta amplitude.RT, accuracy and post-stimulus theta amplitude were not statistically significantly different among early follicular, late follicular or luteal women.

Cortical theta amplitudes in response to presentation of non-living NOF− items for women during early follicular phase (EFP), late follicular phase (LFP) and luteal phase (LP). Theta activity is shown for women below (red) or above (black) the median split of 17-β-estradiol.

Theta activity is shown for women below (red) or above (black) the median split of 17-β-estradiol.

Mentions: Correlations between E2 and theta amplitude revealed significantly larger amplitude in women low in E2 compared to women high in E2 in early follicular and luteal phases (Fig. 2). Table 4 summarizes correlations between E2 and theta amplitude for early follicular, late follicular, and luteal women. Significant correlations between E2 level and theta amplitudes were identified for living and non-living items in early follicular women, but not in late follicular or luteal women. In luteal women, correlations reached significance only for NOF− items. Thus, in early follicular women, good performers were characterized by low E2 and a large theta amplitude.
