Health officials are warning that living in a city may have a negative impact on your brain.

A study from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor found that living in an urban environment makes it more difficult for an individual to hold things in memory.

Test subjects scored lower on attention tests, and had a worse mood than those in suburban areas. Experts also found that just getting glimpses of green areas can improve brain performance.
