Can you forward this question to someone who could help solve this problem. If you are involved in open space office design you should understand this phenomena.

/// I am attempting to solve a puzzle. I am searching for the name or proper term for a psychiatric work place injury discovered by civil engineers, about fifty years ago. This was in the early days of office space design. (The date is a guess.) This problem produces a psychotic episode, with no other risk factors or medical conditions, if certain critical elements come together in faulty design. Workers appeared to become psychotic just sitting at their desks working.

I believe the design or redesign of the Cubicle was the solution to the problem back then.

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

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

What term or name is used for the reason modern cubicles have privacy screens which block peripheral vision?
