Dr. Louann Brizendine – Biographical Brief

LouannBrizendineDr. Louann Brizendine is an American scientist, a neuropsychiatrist, and is both a researcher and clinician. She is the author of two books: The Female Brain, and The Male Brain (published in 2010).

Dr. Brizendine’s research concerns women’s moods and hormones. She graduated in neurobiology from UC Berkeley, attended Yale School of Medicine and completed a residency in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. She is board-certified in psychiatry and neurology and is an endowed clinical professor. She joined the faculty of UCSF Medical Center at the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute in 1988 and now holds the Lynne- and Marc Benioff-endowed chair of psychiatry. At UCSF, Brizendine carries out clinical, teaching, writing and research activities.

In 1994 Brizendine founded the UC San Francisco Women’s Mood and Hormone Clinic, and continues to serve as its director.

Dr. Brizendine also teaches courses to medical students, residents and other physicians throughout the country, on the neurobiology of hormones, mood disorders, anxiety problems, and changes in sexual interest due to hormones.

Brizendine’s book, “The Female Brain”, sold more than one million copies around the world.

She has also written The Male Brain and admitted that her books emphasize the differences between men and women
which has led to her ‘best-selling’ success.

Dr. Brizendine lives with her husband in Marin County, across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. An avid photographer, her sunrise and moonrise pictures taken across the bay from Berkeley and the Oakland hills, are breathtaking.
