Environmental characteristics and risks influencing cognitive and brain health

There has previously been minimal research on how urban environments impact on cognition despite animal work showing associations. We will measure associations between environmental characteristics, stressors, toxic particulates such as air pollution and cognitive health, and geographically map cognitive function outcomes to identify both risk and protective features of environments that are linked to cognitive health. Datasets will be geocoded and linked to environmental characteristics. Datasets include AusDiab and HILDA, COSMIC and CAPA dataset with relevant data.
