///Did you find your material on line? I am looking for a piece of information on the cubicle. Can you forward this question to someone who could help solve this problem. Or share information you located?

/// I am attempting to solve a puzzle. I am searching for the name or proper term for a work place injury discovered by civil engineers about fifty years ago. This problem produces a psychotic episode with no other risk factors or conditions. Workers appeared to become psychotic just sitting at their desks working.

This site describes the problem.....involving subliminal peripheral vision....

http://www.visionandpsychosis.net

I have Email addresses and guest book at . Use any address at any location.

The discovery I am seeking would have been responsible for the development of the modern cubicle. I recall one case in the period 1962/67 when I was in college. All modern cubicles have fixed seating positions which are arranged so that the peripheral vision of the user is blocked from seeing moving human traffic in aisles adjoining the cubicle.

If you found the information and can answer my question leave a message at the site.

What term or name is used for the reason for these panels or privacy screens which block peripheral vision?
