INSTITUTIONAL WORK TAKEN LITERALLY: HOW INSTITUTIONAL LOGICS SHIFT AS BANKING LAWYERS ‘GET THE DEAL DONE’
|Abstract||The role of interest and agency in the creation and transformation of institutions, in particular the “paradox of embedded agency” (Seo & Creed, 2002) have long puzzled institutional scholars. Most recently, Lawrence and Suddaby (2006) coined the term “institutional work” to describe various strategies for creating, maintaining and disrupting institutions. This label, while useful to integrate existing research, highlights institutionalists’ lack ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]|

Good Fences Make Good Neighbors: A Longitudinal Analysis of an Industry Self-Regulatory Institution
|Abstract||We extend theories of self-regulation of physical commons to analyze self-regulation of intangible commons in modern industry. We posit that when the action of one firm can cause "spillover" harm to others, firms share a type of commons. We theorize that the need to protect this commons can motivate the formation of a self-regulatory institution. Using data from the U.S. chemical industry, we find that spillover harm from industrial accidents inc ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]|

Detecting activations in event-related fMRI using analysis of variance.
|Abstract||The most common design of a functional MRI (fMRI) experiment is a block design. The use of rapid imaging, however, and carefully designed paradigms makes the separation of cognitive events possible. Such experiments make use of event-related paradigms, in which a task involving several cognitive processes is repeated. In analyzing data from such experiments, existing methods often prove inadequate, because the prediction of the exact shape or tim ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]|

Time-resolved fluorescence imaging for quantitative histochemistry using lanthanide chelates in nanoparticles and conjugated to monoclonal antibodies.
|Abstract||Tissue and cell examinations have a potential to produce extremely valuable information about antigen quantities in samples. Using currently available methods, a truly quantitative analysis is nearly impossible. We have previously shown that immunohistochemical (IHC) detection of prostate-specific antigen and human glandular kallikrein from prostatic tissue, together with time-resolved fluorescence imaging (TRFI), is a suitable method for obtaini ...
