I have striven to make the research and this book worthy of the generous help I have been given. for giving me many valuable comments as the research proceeded. I(More)
The distinction between automatic processes and controlled processes is a central organizational theme across areas of psychology. However, this dichotomy conceals important differences among qualitatively different processes that independently contribute to ongoing behavior. The Quadruple process model is a multinomial model that provides quantitative(More)

In this respect, we derive eight hypotheses that link attributes of resources and capabilities, institutional, financial, commercial and human capital, to university spinoff outcomes. Using(More)
Our goal is to use intelligent biological inspiration to develop robots that capture the capacity of animals to traverse complex terrain. We follow two distinct but complementary strategies to meet this goal. In one, we have produced a series of robots that have mechanical and control designs increasingly more similar to those of a cockroach. The leg(More)
A year-long investigation was undertaken to determine the impact of a radical new scheme of office layout on work-related behavior, communication and performance. The office layout under investigation is best described as "non-territorial". It is an open floor plan arrangement, but goes far beyond the traditional open space office, removing not only office(More)
