Responses to Urban Stimuli: A Balanced Approach.
Geller, Daniel M.
Journal of Social Issues, v36 n3 p86-100 Sum 1980
Proposes an alternative to Milgram's overload model of urban behavior. Suggests that intense, complex and/or novel stimuli may lead to positive as well as negative effects, and that this may vary across persons or over time. Presents data that confirm the importance of urban complexity as an organizing variable. (Author/GC)
