If I understand what you are saying, here is what you are looking for.

Since the independent variable is what you manipulate (change) or control, it would be the light everyone is exposed to. There can only be one independent variable at a time. You could do 3 different experiments: bright light, average light, dim light (for example.)

The dependent variable depends upon the independent variable and will be what you observe and measure. In other words, it would be the response (how the body language changes) you get. You might get more than one dependent variable.
