The role of the neighbourhood environment in children’s reward processing
Sensitivity to rewards (positive outcomes) and punishments (negative outcomes) is thought to contribute to the development of common mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety. However, we know little about the factors that determine reward and punishment sensitivity in the first place. In this project we will explore the impact of neighbourhood environment on reward and punishment sensitivity in children, using longitudinal data from the Millennium Cohort Study, a large general population cohort study following ~19,000 children born in 2000-02 in the UK. We will investigate the role of physical and social aspects of the child’s immediate residential area, at ages 9 months, and 3, 5, 7, and 11 years, on reward and punishment sensitivity at age 11 years, measured using the extensively validated CANTAB Cambridge Gambling Task (CGT). The project is funded by the UCL Institute of Mental Health
