Binter and colleagues studied links between urban design and child development.  They report that they “investigated the association between early-life urban environment and cognitive and motor function in children. We used data from 5403 mother–child pairs from four population-based birth-cohorts (UK, France, Spain, and Greece). . . .

Higher connectivity density within 100 m and land use diversity during pregnancy were related to lower verbal abilities.
