Outdoor and indoor pollutants have been linked to a variety of adverse health effects including increasing the risk of cardiac disease and lung diseases.  It is thought that air pollution may also cause problems with memory and the brain’s ability to process information.

This study will investigate the effect of common air pollutants on brain function in healthy participants who have family members with brain disorders such as dementia.

It is being carried out by a team based at The University of Manchester and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council.
