The Lure of Authority: Motivation and Incentive Effects of Power

Fehr, Ernst ; Herz, Holger ; Wilkening, Tom

In: The American Economic Review, 2013, vol. 103, no. 4, p. 1325-1359

Authority and power permeate political, social, and economic life, but empirical knowledge about the motivational origins and consequences of authority is limited. We study the motivation and incentive effects of authority experimentally in an authority delegation game. Individuals often retain authority even when its delegation is in their material interest—suggesting that authority has...

The intrinsic value of decision rights

Bartling, Björn ; Fehr, Ernst ; Herz, Holger

In: Econometrica, 2014, vol. 82, no. 6, p. 2005-2039

Philosophers, psychologists, and economists have long argued that certain decision rights carry not only instrumental value but may also be valuable for their own The ideas of autonomy, freedom, and liberty derive their intuitive appeal - partly - from an assumed positive intrinsic value of decision rights. Providing evidence for the existence of this intrinsic value and measuring its size,...

Earthworm communities in alluvial forests : Influence of altitude, vegetation stages and soil parameters

Salomé, Clémence ; Guenat, Claire ; Bullinger-Weber, Géraldine ; Gobat, Jean-Michel ; Le Bayon, Renée-Claire

In: Pedobiologia, 2011, vol. 54S, p. S89-S98

In many terrestrial ecosystems, soil parameters usually regulate the distribution of earthworm communities. In alluvial ecosystems, few studies have investigated the impact of periodic floods and alluvium deposition on soil fauna. In this context, we assumed that earthworm communities may vary depending on altitude (alpine, subalpine, mountain and hill levels), forest successional stage...

Earthworms affect plant growth and resistance against herbivores : A meta-analysis

Xiao, Zhenggao ; Wang, Xie ; Koricheva, Julia ; Kergunteuil, Alan ; Le Bayon, Renée-Claire ; Liu, Manqiang ; Hu, Feng ; Rasmann, Sergio

In: Functional Ecology, 2018, vol. 32, no. 1, p. 150-160

1. Subterranean detritivores such as earthworms can increase soil nutrient availability through their burrowing and casting activities. A number of recent studies have explored whether these changes caused by earthworms may in turn affect plant performance and resistance to herbivores, but no formal synthesis of this literature has been conducted to date. 2. We tested for the effects of...

Basal forebrain contributes to default mode network regulation

Nair, Jayakrishnan ; Klaassen, Arndt-Lukas ; Arato, Jozsef ; Vyssotski, Alexei L. ; Harvey, Michael ; Rainer, Gregor

In: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2018, vol. 115, no. 6, p. 1352–1357

The default mode network (DMN) is a collection of cortical brain regions that is active during states of rest or quiet wakefulness in humans and other mammalian species. A pertinent characteristic of the DMN is a suppression of local field potential gamma activity during cognitive task performance as well as during engagement with external sensory stimuli. Conversely, gamma activity is...
