Coates' research focuses on the hormonal basis of financial decision making, inspired by his own experiences trading. He describes how men trading "display what may be called [the] classical clinical symptoms of mania. They were delusional, they were euphoric, they were over confident, they had racing thoughts [and a] diminished need for sleep."
In 2012, Coates published The Hour Between Dog and Wolf: how risk-taking transforms us, body and mind.
