Abstract

Electroencephalographic driving reponses to photic stimulation vary with the menstrual cycle and with manipulations of ovarian hormones thought to control the menstrual cycle. Estrogens reduce driving responses to photic stimulation, and estrogen plus progesterone enhance these responses. The electroencephalographic changes may reflect the effects of gonadal steroid hormones upon central adrenergic processes.
