biofeedback

Second lesson today. Ten degree improvement in 20 minutes. Supposedly (!), this means my “psychological system is very elastic”. With practice, I ought to be able to warm my hands at will, regardless of external (or internal) stressors: this is known as field independence. This paper by Musser places field independence/dependence firmly within cognitive studies and examines its affects on learning.
These definitions seem limited – bounded by the assumptions of cognitive science. They are useful, in context. My first association of the term, field independence, is with Gestalt theory and group relations, particularly the ability to self-authorize.
