Neurotyping and PCOS

I just listened to your interview on The Fitcast and thought it was extremely interesting. I easily recognized my type and just looked up some additional information. That said, I haven’t read through all your materials on neurotyping and I am just entering the industry so I’m an open book for learning.

I am curious if you have any articles related to neuro type and hormonal issues in women such as PCOS? I would imagine the hormonal imbalance has an effect on neuro type (or masks actual neuro type). Again, I’m a newbie so I apologize if this is a juvenile question.

In case it helps, hormonally PCOS could be viewed as periodic stretches of very high cortisol output, also resulting in very high insulin output and insulin resistance.
