Several recurring concepts in environmental psychology include attention and how we notice the environment, perception and cognitive maps, environmental stressors such as noise, conservation behavior and outdoor recreation. One topic environmental psychologists are currently studying is the role of the physical environment in influencing criminal behavior, and conversely, the fear of crime.
