I had hoped to avoid this problem by making the feedback subliminal, but the feedback was distracting in very much the same way that I believe supraliminal feedback is distracting and why I am biased against its use despite its potential information value.
The authors assigned healthy participants to one of four groups, each including an acquisition phase and a test phase and varying subliminal and supraliminal stimulus presentations.
At the relatively high initial clotting activity the additional appearing of procoagulants due to the physical exercises leads to the thrombin formation in supraliminal concentration; this leads to the formed reflexory response of anticlotting mechanisms due to which the blood stream has excess of anticoagulants and there appears a relative hypocoagulation which is conditioned by the muscular work.
Auditory performance, however, hardly depends on thresholds but rather on supraliminal sound processing.
Researchers generally deliver primes in one of two ways: subliminal ("below threshold") and supraliminal ("above threshold").

This creates and effect known as the "Retinal Summation of the Subliminal and Supraliminal Stimuli." In the effect, both the subliminal and supraliminal stimuli are stored in the retina and have chance to mix (Silverman, 1983).
