I’m Dr Sarah McKay.
I’m an Oxford University-educated neuroscientist, presenter of ABC Catalyst, director of The Neuroscience Academy, and author of The Women's Brain Book. The neuroscience of health, hormones and happiness.
I simplify insights from neuroscience research into smart actionable strategies for peak performance, creativity, health, and wellbeing.
Curious about the role of neuroscience in everyday life, mental health, wellbeing, and change? Wonder why you think, feel and act the way you do, and what you can do to change the wiring of your brain?
The Women's Brain Book.
The Neuroscience of Health, Hormones and Happiness.
As women, understanding how our minds and brains are shaped and sculpted by our genes and hormones, our life experiences, society and culture, and our thoughts, feelings and beliefs is key to health and wellbeing.
The story begins in the womb and chapters focus in turn on infancy and girlhood, puberty and the menstrual cycle, the teenage years, mental health, romance and sex, pregnancy and motherhood, menopause, and finally longevity and old age.
