Interaction Design as a Motivator

Fang-Wu Tung, Yi-Shin Deng
2019 Zenodo  
Product design is often intended to change the user's behavior and attitude, especially for products that carry educational functions. Digital technology works to enrich products with more interactive experiences while placing increased emphasis on the influence of user behavior. Using products aimed at facilitating children's learning as examples, this paper will explore an approach that may employ interaction design in transforming persuasive intentions into actual products for educational
more » ... motivational purposes. The research begins with the study of persuasive technology, educational technology, and learning motivation. Then it will seek to analyze the design strategies of ten related examples based on the framework of persuasive technology. The relevance between these persuasive strategies and the aim of enhancing learning motivations will be further examined to provide an insight into how to target learners' motivation. Then as a conclusion, this paper will propose some design principles based on human-computer interaction to transform persuasive intentions into real products that may motivate children to learn. In addition to providing the user with more experiences and emotional attachments, interaction design can influence users even more persuasively. The study proposes an approach to enhance the persuasive power of products via interaction design for the purpose of motivating children's learning. The approach may provide designers with a new tool as they proceed to design related products for children. It'll further suggest a new thinking in both industrial and interaction designs.

Generating a host range-expanded recombinant baculovirus

Chunfeng Wu, Zihao Deng, Zhao Long, Yi Cai, Zhongfu Ying, Hanqi Yin, Meijin Yuan, Rollie J. Clem, Kai Yang, Yi Pang
2016 Scientific Reports  
As baculoviruses usually have a narrow insecticidal spectrum, knowing the mechanisms by which they control the host-range is prerequisite for improvement of their applications as pesticides. In this study, from supernatant of culture cells transfected with DNAs of an Autographa californica multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV) mutant lacking the antiapoptotic gene p35 (vAc ∆P35 ) and a cosmid representing a fragment of Spodoptera exigua nucleopolyhedrovirus (SeMNPV), a viral strain was

Genome sequencing indicated that vAcRev comprises a mixture of two viruses with different circular dsDNA genomes. One virus contains a genome similar to vAc ∆P35 , while in the other viral genome, a 24.4 kbp-fragment containing 10 essential genesis replaced with a 4 kbp-fragment containing three SeMNPV genes including a truncated Se-iap3 gene. RNA interference and ectopic expression assays found that Se-iap3 is responsible for the host range expansion of vAcRev, suggesting that Se-iap3 inhibits the progression of apoptosis initiated by viral infection and promotes viral propagation in hosts both permissive and non-permissive for AcMNPV and SeMNPV.

Germline silencing of UASt depends on the piRNA pathway [article]

Yi-Chun Huang, Henry Moreno, Sarayu Row, Dongyu Jia, Wu-Min Deng
2018 bioRxiv   pre-print
One of the most extensively used techniques in Drosophila is the Gal4/UAS binary system, which allows tissue-specific misexpression or knockdown of specific genes of interest. The original UAS vector, UASt, can only be activated for transgene expression in somatic tissues and not in the germline cells. Rorth (1998) generated UASp, a modified UAS vector that is responsive to Gal4 in both somatic and germline tissues, by replacing both the hsp70 promoter and the SV40 3UTR with the P transposase
more » ... omoter and the K10 3UTR respectively. At present, the mechanisms by which UASt is silenced in germline cells are not fully understood. Here, we report that the piRNA pathway is involved in suppressing UASt expression in ovarian germline cells. Individually knocking down or mutating components of the piRNA biogenesis pathway (e.g., Piwi, AGO3, Aub, Spn-E, and Vasa) resulted in the expression of the UASt-reporter (GFP or RFP) in the germline. An RNA-seq analysis of small RNAs revealed that the hsp70 promoter of UASt is targeted by piRNAs, and in the aub mutant ovary, the amount of piRNAs targeting the hsp70 promoter is reduced by around 40 folds. In contrast, the SV40 3UTR of the UASt, which happens to be targeted by the Nonsense-mediated RNA decay (NMD) pathway, is not responsible for germline UASt suppression, as UASt-reporters with NMD-insensitive 3UTRs fail to show germline expression. Taken together, our studies reveal a crucial role of the piRNA pathway, potentially via the suppression of the hsp70 promoter, in germline UASt silencing in Drosophila ovaries.

P2X1 receptor-mediated pressor responses in the anesthetized mouse

Lu Li, Yi Wu, Mo Deng, Guangyi Wu, Leiming Ren
2012 Acta Pharmaceutica Sinica B  
P2X 1 receptors and adrenoceptors are mainly responsible for vasoconstriction in a variety of blood vessels. However, previous studies have shown that a,b-methylene adenosine 5 0 -triphosphate (a,b-MeATP), a stable analogue of ATP, can induce both pressor and depressor responses in laboratory animals. In this study, the effects of increasing intravenous doses of a,b-MeATP and noradrenaline (NA) (0-30 nmol/kg) administered at 20 min intervals on systolic (SBP), diastolic (DBP) and mean (MBP)

Both a,b-MeATP and NA caused transient, dose-dependent increases in SBP, DBP and MBP but the effect of a,b-MeATP was more rapid and significantly larger at doses of 10 and 30 nmol/kg (Po0.01). At the dose of 30 nmol/kg, a,b-MeATP increased SBP, DBP and MBP by 65.877.0, 65.775.0 and 65.775.5 mmHg, respectively, compared to increases of 36.874.6, 33.374.9 and 34.574.7 mmHg, respectively, produced by NA. These results indicate P2X 1 receptors play an important role in BP regulation although purinergic vasoconstriction alone may not explain the more potent pressor response to a,b-MeATP in the anesthetized mouse.

2012 arXiv   pre-print
We investigate the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) steering and its criticality in quantum phase transition. It is found that the EPR steerability function of the ground state of XY spin chain exhibits nonanalytic feature in the vicinity of a quantum phase transition by showing that its derivative with respect to anisotropy parameter diverges at the critical point. We then verify the universality of the critical phenomena of the EPR steerability function in the system. We also use two-qubit

Multi-Radical Lipkin-Meshkov-Glick Model for Avian Navigation [article]

Jia-Yi Wu, Xin-Yuan Hu, Hai-Yuan Zhu, Ru-Qiong Deng, Qing Ai
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The mechanism of avian navigation is an important question for global scientists. One of the most famous candidates is the radical pair mechanism (RPM), which shows that avian navigation is achieved by detecting the amount of products from chemical reactions, which exhibit different properties for singlet and triplet spin states. Based on the theory, we explore the amount of the the singlet recombination product by changing the coupling strength and direction of the magnetic field. The radical

We find weakest navigation ability in QPT point according to one of our proposing methods. And we find invariant subspace in our Hamiltonian when the magnetic field is vertical to the plane of the radical pair and the bath, which will greatly speed up our calculation. Our results could help the exploration of the design principle of artificial avian navigation.

A case of alpha-fetoprotein-producing esophageal adenocarcinoma

Yi-Yu Chen, Wen-Hung Hsu, Huang-Ming Hu, Deng-Chyang Wu, Wen-Yi Lin
2013 Kaohsiung Journal of Medical Sciences  
Alpha-fetoprotein is a well-known tumor marker in the screening and follow-up of hepatocellular carcinoma. In Taiwanese society, a high prevalence of hepatitis and hepatoma and elevation of alpha-fetoprotein associated with liver function impairment usually suggested clinics undertake further examination for liver or genital tumor. We report the case of 45-yearold man who was found to have an alpha-fetoprotein-producing esophageal adenocarcinoma with an initial presentation of liver function
more » ... airment and rapid elevation of alphafetoprotein. Esophageal cancer was diagnosed via endoscope and a biopsy proved the presence of adenocarcinoma. A small endoscopic biopsy specimen failed to identify the alphafetoprotein positive tumor cell. Esophagectomy was performed and histopathological study of surgical specimen revealed grade II adenocarcinoma with regional metastatic lymphadenopathy. Immunohistochemical study was focal positive for alpha-fetoprotein. Serum alphafetoprotein declined transiently after esophagectomy and fluctuation of alpha-fetoprotein level was noted during the treatment with adjuvant chemotherapy. Finally, 19 months after the operation, the patient died due to multiple organ metastases with multiple organ failure. Thus, a small specimen for upper endoscopy may not be sufficient in the presence of alphafetoprotein-producing adenocarcinoma. Monitoring of serum alpha-fetoprotein may be useful in the evaluation and follow-up of esophageal alpha-fetoprotein-producing adenocarcinoma.
