Table 2 Main MINDMAP research questions to be answered with the integrated database infrastructure

From: MINDMAP: establishing an integrated database infrastructure for research in ageing, mental well-being, and the urban environment

1. How do variations across cities in mental well-being and cognitive outcomes in later life relate to urban environments, and how do they impact on co-morbidities?
2. How does the urban environment modify genetics and biomarkers as a potential mechanism through which features of the urban environment contribute to psychopathology in later life?
3. How do urban environmental characteristics influence mental well-being and cognitive outcomes in later life by shaping lifestyle behaviours?
4. How do psychosocial urban determinants influence mental well-being in later life?
5. How do ‘health-in-all’ and mental health prevention policies impact the mental well-being of older urban residents?
