Child Study Journal, v26 n2 p125-48 Sep 1996

Repeated measures multivariate analysis indicated that field-independent children engaged in more play than did field-dependent children. Significant interaction was found for age, cognitive style, and play behaviors. Older field-independent children exhibited more field independence and play behaviors than did younger field- dependent children. (HTH)
