Living in high-rise apartments and driving cars are very new experiences for the human species, but we are notable for our ability to adapt to wildly diverse physical landscapes. Environmental psychology explores how physical spaces influence the way we feel, think, and interact with the world and vice versa. Specialists in the field investigate everything from architecture to wildlife conservation, climate change and outdoor recreation in an effort to better understand how both natural and built environments influence human behavior. Environmental psychologists are developing new methods for identifying stressful designs in urban landscapes and better models for measuring the therapeutic effects of the outdoors on children.
