Socionomics Institute Senior Researcher Alan Hall presented his research connecting declines in stock market indexes to infectious disease outbreaks at the University of Warwick’s Mood Conference on May 6, 2016. The event gathered researchers from a dozen countries and over five continents to discuss their work on mood.
