Animal experiments and cross-sectional human studies have linked particulate matter (PM) with increased behavioral problems. We conducted a longitudinal study to examine whether the trajectories of delinquent behavior are affected by PM2.5 (PM with aerodynamic diameter ≤ 2.5 μm) exposures before and during adolescence. We used the parent-reported Child Behavior Checklist at age 9–18 with repeated measures every ~2–3 years (up to 4 behavioral assessments) on 682 children from the Risk Factors… 
Air pollution and trajectories of adolescent conduct problems: the roles of ethnicity and racism; evidence from the DASH longitudinal study
TLDR
Exposure to lower concentrations of PM2.5 and NO2 was associated with a decrease in conduct problems during adolescence, while exposure to higher concentrations wasassociated with a flattened trajectory of conduct symptoms.
Acute air pollution exposure and the risk of violent behavior in the United States.
TLDR
It is suggested that short-term changes in ambient air pollution may be associated with greater risk of violent behavior, regardless of community type.
Indoor and outdoor PM2.5 exposure, and anxiety among schoolchildren in Korea: a panel study
TLDR
There was no association between PM2.5 exposure and anxiety in children based on the analysis of repeated measurements during the study period, and long-term follow-up studies are needed in various regions to further investigate the associations between PM3.0 and children’s mental health.

    Quantitative Risk Analysis of Air Pollution Health Effects
  • 2020
TLDR
A large number of studies have found that reducing particulate pollution dramatically has not detectably affected all-cause mortality rates even after decades, despite strong, statistically significant positive exposure concentration-response (C-R) associations between them.
Assessing conduct disturbance and fly ash exposure in children
Minimal research has been conducted on fly ash (a byproduct of coal combustion) and health outcomes among exposed communities, and even less has looked at its effect on children’s behavior. This

Prenatal Exposure to Traffic-related Air Pollution and Child Behavioral Development Milestone Delays in Japan
TLDR
Air pollution exposure during gestation was positively associated with the risk of some developmental milestone delays at both ages, and air pollution was associated with verbal and fine motor development at age 2.5 years, and with behaviors related to inhibition and impulsivity at 5.
Longitudinal effects of prenatal exposure to air pollutants on self-regulatory capacities and social competence.
TLDR
It is suggested that prenatal exposure to PAH produces long-lasting effects on self-regulatory capacities across early and middle childhood, and that these deficits point to emerging social problems with real-world consequences for high-risk adolescent behaviors in this minority urban cohort.
Associations between Traffic-Related Black Carbon Exposure and Attention in a Prospective Birth Cohort of Urban Children
TLDR
A positive association was found between higher BC levels with increased commission errors and slower HRT, adjusting for child IQ, age, sex, blood lead level, maternal education, pre- and postnatal tobacco smoke exposure, and community-level social stress.
Traffic-Related Air Pollution Exposure in the First Year of Life and Behavioral Scores at 7 Years of Age
TLDR
Exposure to the highest tertile of ECAT during the child’s first year of life was significantly associated with Hyperactivity T-scores in the “at risk” range at 7 years of age, after adjustment.
Bone Lead Levels and Delinquent Behavior
TLDR
Lead exposure is associated with increased risk for antisocial and delinquent behavior, and the effect follows a developmental course.
Traffic-Related Air Pollution, Noise at School, and Behavioral Problems in Barcelona Schoolchildren: A Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
Noise exposure at school was associated with more ADHD symptoms, and increases in indoor and outdoor EC, BC, and NO2 concentrations were positively associated with SDQ total difficulties scores, whereas noise was significantly associated with ADHD-DSM-IV scores.
Effects of prenatal exposure to air pollutants (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) on the development of brain white matter, cognition, and behavior in later childhood.
TLDR
The findings suggest that prenatal exposure to PAH air pollutants contributes to slower processing speed, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder symptoms, and externalizing problems in urban youth by disrupting the development of left hemisphere white matter, whereas postnatal PAH exposure contributes to additional disturbances in theDevelopment of white matter in dorsal prefrontal regions.
Association between air pollution and lung function growth in southern California children: results from a second cohort.
TLDR
Findings provide important replication of the previous findings of an effect of air pollution on lung function growth that were based on the first fourth-grade cohort from the Children's Health Study (Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2000;162:1383-1390).
Prenatal Exposure to Air Pollution, Maternal Psychological Distress, and Child Behavior
TLDR
Maternal demoralization during pregnancy appears to have a greater effect on child neurobehavioral development among children who experienced high prenatal PAH exposure, indicating the need for a multifaceted approach to the prevention of developmental problems in children.
