An ALE Meta-Analysis on Investment Decision-Making
Elena Ortiz-Teran, Ibai Diez, Joaquin Lopez-Pascual. An ALE Meta-Analysis on Investment Decision-Making (Brain Sciences).
It is claimed that investment decision-making should rely on rational analyses based on facts and not emotions. However, trying to make money out of market forecasts can trigger all types of emotional responses. As the question on how investors decide remains controversial, we carried out an activation likelihood estimation (ALE) meta-analysis using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies that have reported whole-brain analyses on subjects performing an investment task. Our findings support the notion that investment choices are emotional decisions that take into account market information, individual preferences and beliefs.

Acute Effects of Global Postural Re-Education on Non-Specific Low Back Pain. Does Time-of-Day Play a Role?
David Merinero, Manuel Rodríguez-Aragón, Javier Álvarez-González, Álvaro López-Samanes and Joaquín López-Pascual. "Acute Effects of Global Postural Re-Education on Non-Specific Low Back Pain. Does Time-of-Day Play a Role?" International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health
This article will serve as the basis for subsequent studies that are being carried out on the treatment of LBP as an aid to improve the health quality standards so important in the western industrialized economies.
Low back pain is one the most common forms of musculoskeletal disorders. Thus, several physiotherapeutic strategies (e.g., global postural re-education therapy) have been used for reducing low back pain. The aim of this study was to determinate if acute application of global postural re-education session associated effects are influenced by the time-of-day when this physical therapy is applied.
Structural breaks in the interaction between bank and sovereign default risk
Lidija Lovreta & Joaquín López Pascual(2020) "Structural breaks in the interaction between bank and sovereign default risk" SERIEs Journal of the Spanish Economic Association.
The recent financial and sovereign debt crises emphasized the interdependence between bank and sovereign default risk and showed that major shocks may lead to a self-reinforcing negative spiral. In this paper, we analyse the pattern of interaction between bank and sovereign default risk by endogenously estimating the timing of structural breaks.
