Quantify’s Christoph Abé (PhD) was involved in a large-scale study identifying population-level brain changes related to stock market fluctuations using neuroimaging data from the UK Biobank.

The study, published in Nature: Scientific Reports, showed in about 40,000 individuals that fluctuations in economic indices, such as stock market, are associated with changes in brain structure, mood, and wellbeing on a population-level.

This is of importance, since economic indices often correlate with major global events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic or ongoing political conflicts. Hence, this study suggests that specific global events may in fact impact our brain structure and function. Link to the original research article:  https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-022-08569-3
