cognitive development

Paper which aimed to test the relationship between childhood cognitive function and long-term sick leave in adult life and whether any relationship was mediated by educational attainment, adult social class or adult mental ill-health.

Data from the 1946, 1958 and 1970 British birth cohorts was used. Initial study populations included all live births in 1 week in that year.

The purpose of this review is to establish what research is available on the effect of modes of travel on children's mental health and cognitive and social development, and the potential for further research. This systematic review was published by EPPI-Centre in 2001 .Systematic reviews aim to find as much as possible of the research relevant to the particular research questions, and use explicit methods to identify what can reliably be said on the basis of these studies.
