Prospective Evaluation of Air Pollution, Cognition and Autism from Birth Onward

This study will examine the relationship between perinatal and early life air pollution exposure and early longitudinal measures of cognitive ability and ASD in two prospective samples – Markers of Autism Risk in Babies, Learning Early Signs (MARBLES) and Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigation (EARLI). Aim 1 is to assign air pollutant exposure using geographic information systems (GIS) technology and novel biomarker measurements. Aim 2 is to examine the effect of air pollutant exposure on the trajectory of cognitive development. Aim 3 is to evaluate the effect of air pollution exposure on cross-sectional and longitudinal measures of autistic traits and ASD diagnoses.
