Motivation through the Design of Work: Test of a Theory. Organizational Behavior and Human Performance,
, 1976
"... A model is proposed that specifies the conditions under which individuals will become internally motivated to perform effectively on their jobs. The model focuses on the interaction among three classes of variables: (a) the psychological states of employees that must be present for internally motiv ..."

activation at nearoptimal levels through planned stimulus change, then the theory can contribute substantially to increasing the usefulness of job rotation as a motivational technique. If, however, it turns out that there are general and inevitable decreases in activation over time regardless of how
Linear models and empirical bayes methods for assessing differential expression in microarray experiments.
 Stat. Appl. Genet. Mol. Biol.
, 2004
"... Abstract The problem of identifying differentially expressed genes in designed microarray experiments is considered. Lonnstedt and Speed (2002) derived an expression for the posterior odds of differential expression in a replicated twocolor experiment using a simple hierarchical parametric model. ..."

sample variances towards a pooled estimate, resulting in far more stable inference when the number of arrays is small. The use of moderated tstatistics has the advantage over the posterior odds that the number of hyperparameters which need to estimated is reduced; in particular, knowledge of the non
Testing monotonicity of distributions over general partial orders
 In Proceedings of ITCS
, 2011
"... Abstract We investigate the number of samples required for testing the monotonicity of a distribution with respect to an arbitrary underlying partially ordered set. Our first result is a nearly linear lower bound for the sample complexity of testing monotonicity with respect to the poset consisting ..."

Distributive Substructural Logics as Coalgebraic Logics over Posets
"... We show how to understand frame semantics of distributive substructural logics coalgebraically, thus opening a possibility to study them as coalgebraic logics. As an application of this approach we prove a general version of GoldblattThomason theorem that characterizes definability of classes of fr ..."

of frames for logics extending the distributive Full Lambek logic, as e.g. relevance logics, manyvalued logics or intuitionistic logic. The paper is rather conceptual and does not claim to contain significant new results. We consider a category of frames as posets equipped with monotone relations, and show
Testing monotone highdimensional distributions
 In STOC
, 2005
"... A monotone distribution P over a (partially) ordered domain assigns higher probability to y than to x if y ≥ x in the order. We study several natural problems concerning testing properties of monotone distributions over the ndimensional Boolean cube, given access to random draws from the distributi ..."

Selfdetermination and persistence in a reallife setting: Toward a motivational model of high school dropout.
 Journal of Personality and Social Psychology,
, 1997
"... The purpose of this study was to propose and test a motivational model of high school dropout. The model posits that teachers, parents, and the school administration's behaviors toward students influence students' perceptions of competence and autonomy. The less autonomy supportive the so ..."

Peekaboom: A Game for Locating Objects in Images
 In ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems
, 2006
"... We introduce Peekaboom, an entertaining webbased game that can help computers locate objects in images. People play the game because of its entertainment value, and as a side effect of them playing, we collect valuable image metadata, such as which pixels belong to which object in the image. The co ..."

. The collected data could be applied towards constructing more accurate computer vision algorithms, which require massive amounts of training and testing data not currently available. Peekaboom has been played by thousands of people, some of whom have spent over 12 hours a day playing, and thus far has generated

Behavioral theories and the neurophysiology of reward,
 Annu. Rev. Psychol.

Therefore, the investigation of neural mechanisms underlying reward functions requires behavioral theories that can ..."
