CEDAR FALLS, Iowa --'The Link Between Estrogen, Brain, and Behavior: Why it Matters' will be the topic of the next CROW (Current Research on Women) Forum lecture, at noon, Monday, Nov. 4, in Baker Hall Room 161 on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

Cathy DeSoto, UNI assistant professor of psychology, will discuss estrogen's effects. 'I hope to illustrate how denying the effects of estrogen is potentially demeaning emotionally to women and harmful in terms of health,' she said.

The next program in the CROW Forum series will be Dec. 2, when Karen Mitchell, UNI associate professor of communication studies, and Jana Gymer-Koch, UNI graduate student, will present 'Finding a Voice: Ethnography of the Origins of SAVE Forum Actors.'
