Does your neighborhood help protect your cognitive health as you age?

If you like maps as much as we do (they are basically visual data, right?), you will be excited to know that there's a new interactive map tool recently developed by University of Michigan researchers!

It allows you to assess how your neighborhood could support healthy cognitive aging, based on a theory U-M scientist Jessica Finlay and colleagues developed, called "cognability."

"Cognability is a measure of local places that encourage physical activity, social connection, and cognitive stimulation in later life. It also identifies health threats and barriers to accessing community resources." -Cognability project site
