The Uterus Interacts with the Brain and Affects the Memory, Study
New research from Arizona State University in Tempe, US, suggests that uterus may interact with the brain and influence the memory.
For the study, a team of researchers used a rat model. The female rats were included into four groups, and the rats from three groups underwent surgeries that were equivalent to the surgical removal of the ovaries and removal of the uterus in humans.
After six weeks of experiments and observation, the researchers found that for the female rats with the removed uterus it was more complicated to navigate through the maze than for the female rats from other groups.
First study author Stephanie Koebele, a psychology graduate student at Arizona State University, comments: “The surgical removal of just the uterus had a unique and negative effect on working memory, or how much information the rats were able to manage simultaneously, an effect we saw after the rats learned the rules of the maze.”
