Authors: Hotwani Geetu P and Tripathi S.K

Pages: 111-118


In recent years, research carried out in the field of environmental psychology and crowding was focused on outside density and crowded situations and its impact upon behavior in general. Furthermore, few studies have concluded on the detrimental impact of outside density and crowding on mental health problems. In the present review an attempt has been made to analyze the methodological considerations involved in crowding studies. In earlier studies, perceived crowding and experience of crowding have been considered to see its effects on human behavior. Crowding and mental health have shown detrimental effects which need to be investigated further.
