“In particular, acting under orders caused participants to perceive a distance from outcomes that they themselves caused,” said study co-author Patrick Haggard, a cognitive neuroscientist at University College London, in an email.”
What is the difference between "act under" and "act according to"? If I change "acting under orders" to "acting according to orders" here, would any nuance be lost?
I originally asked the same question here (https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/act-under-according-to-orders.3589389/#post-18265641), but sadly I didn't get a valid answer. I hope you can help me.
