Urban explorers : dealing with the unfamiliar( Visual )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The modern city is a complex maze of choices and decisions. This program describes the brain's empirical approach to finding sense amid confusion. Subconscious methods of information gathering, including visual scanning to find goods in a supermarket and direction finding while traversing an urban environment, are analyzed. In addition, the natural human ability to learn by trial and error is observed, emphasizing the concept of "natural mapping" and the importance of feedback
Keeping up appearances : the culture of conformity by The Glass Jungle/Surviving the city( Visual )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program looks at the concept of conventions. It addresses how people conform to rules. Observation is the key to learning expected behaviour, and people have learned to keep up several appearances to move between different roles. We witness how adaptability is a way to survive
Living on the edge : the line between scary and fun( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program redefines fear stimuli and explores the fine line between fright and excitement. The rapid evolutionary modification of supposedly hard-wired responses to heights, enclosed spaces, and darkness by the demands of modern living is described, along with the new terrors that have taken their place. But parallel to the desire for safety is the desire for excitement. The risks people willingly take, such as driving recklessly fast, to assert their right to control their own lives and to attain an adrenaline high are also examined
Virtual friends : living in cyberspace( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relationships in the modern megalopolis: interpersonal or impersonal? This program investigates the new interactive society model in which physical neighborhoods connected by proximity have been displaced by virtual neighborhoods linked by technology. Topics discussed include the intimate anonymity of the Internet; the use of emoticons in e-mail; the growing importance of telecommunications; the Pavlovian response to a ringing telephone; and the relationship category defined as "familiar strangers
Life at speed : picking up the pace( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why does life in a modern city move so fast, how have people adapted to this frantic pace, and what are the pluses and minuses of adaptation? This program studies the high-speed lifestyle of city dwellers, focusing on issues such as the hormonal response to continual sensory stimulation and the automatic filtering mechanism that protects against sensory overload. Addiction to the unavoidable metabolic rush of urban living is also explored, as well as the stress that occurs when the need for speed is thwarted

Space invaders : strategies for life in a crowd( Visual )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this program, the need for personal space is explored through the avoidance behaviors people employ to maintain a perceived distance from others, such as falling into a "middle-distance stare" in a crowded subway; the use of a proxy, like a jacket on a barstool, to reserve a place; the attitudes of drivers towards other cars on the road, which can lead to road rage; and the unconscious cooperation displayed in sharing public places. The phenomenon of crowd identity, in which the rules of personal space are willingly suspended, is also examined
