Biology-induced effects on investor psychology and behavior
This research utilizes the most recent research in psychology to analyze the innate causes of financial cycles within the context of applied financial theory. Such cycles are shown to be consistent with both human biology and efficient markets, but the brain states induced by biological chemicals produced internally are also explained to potentially contribute to mispricing in inefficient markets.
