“Our results essentially showed the children who grew up in disadvantaged neighborhoods had brains that looked older than was typical for their age during early adolescence… What’s more, these associations held true even when we accounted for household socioeconomic status and other adversities (such as childhood abuse and neglect), which suggests that neighborhood disadvantage has a unique role to play in brain development.
