Cognitive Development in the Urban Environment (CLUE)
Principal Investigator - John Gulliver
Cognitive Development in the Urban Environment (CLUE) aims to investigate the emerging hypothesis that children who were born in and grow up in urban environments display impaired cognitive development due to long-term exposures to air pollution and noise from traffic. This research, funded by MRC, is embedded within the existing Study of Cognition, Adolescents and Mobile Phones (SCAMP). CLUE will also investigate the underlying biological mechanisms by which air pollution and noise may impact on cognitive development in a subset of the SCAMP cohort. CEHS are leading on noise modelling and exposure assessment for the SCAMP cohort.
