in my previous life, i was a day trader, and i enjoyed it. during those days, reading the economist will lead you to topics such as neurofinance and neuroeconomics, which makes you question a few things like, 'do endogenous steroids that are present since birth affect financial decisions?' [link], and so on.
that leads me to present day, where articles on neurofinance and neuroeconomics are not discussed in medical school, but are just as equally complex as cancers or lupus. how come? where do most research outputs on neurofinance end up anyway?
meanwhile, i have been tinkering with pubmed e-utilities for a week now, to see if i can extract data from the freely available ncbi database; read: data mining for free.
so here, then, is a summary of pubmed articles on neurofinance and neuroeconomics published inclusive of 2003 to present, done in R.
a quick glance tells us that only a few research have been published regarding this topic, and it's also fairly recent field. the earliest researches were done in 2003.
as you see, frontiers in neuroscience got the lion's share of the most recent articles, but neuroendocrinology letters published the most articles on neurofinance and neuroeconomics prior to 2012. interestingly, biological psychiatry released all its related articles on 2012, but has not produced any related research since.
as always, there are limitations to this particular dataset. while most academics will consider pubmed as a reliable source of data, we know that its indexing process is not complete. nonetheless, pubmed is still very useful for data mining health-related researches because it's freely available, unlike scopus or web of science, and it is easily replicable.
and since it's like i hit goldmine with this one, i'm tempted to do data mining on lupus, or probably vaccines, while i'm still on vacation; aah, such are the pleasures of curiosity and free time.

Looking for Mew (151st Pokemon)
Mew is the 151st Pokémon to be searched for in the challenge. Mew does not appear until all 150 other pocket monsters are caught.
The difficulty of pinpointing mew arises when you're the impatient type, as the app assigns a specific location per player from a set number of possible locations, as listed by players who have tracked their respective mews.
