Neuromarketing research

Neuromarketing research is the research area that studies neurological responses in relation to a certain stimuli, such as an ad or commercial. Medical techniques and insights of neuroscience are used to reveal consumer decision-making processes. Neuromarketers make use of neural- and physiological responses, and behavior, to understand the subconscious reactions of consumers.

Tools for neuromarketing research

In our experience, combining methods is crucial for gaining insight in something as complex as liking and wanting. Each method (including the traditional ones like interviews and focus groups) can give valuable information. The combination is like bringing the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together.

  • Implicit responses: GSR, EEG, ECG

    Measure implicit responses using high quality data acquisition tools. EEG can be used to determine if someone is feeling engaged. GSR shows you physiological arousal, and ECG shows if the environment or stimulus is calming, relaxing or energizing.
  • Eye tracking

    Eye tracking provides a wealth of information. Get rich, quantitative, and reliable data for attention, mental load, and arousal. Eye tracking data tells you even more when combined with emotional data, or EEG.
  • Facial expression analysis

    FaceReader is the premier software tool to measure emotional responses automatically and accurately. The software analyzes six basic facial expressions: happiness, sadness, anger, surprise, fear, and disgust. Additionally, it can also recognize neutral, contempt, boredom, interest, and confusion.
  • Data integration tool

    The Observer XT provides the possibility to synchronize observational, eye tracking, emotional, and physiological data. Clear visualizations of data will provide you immediate insight into participant responses.

"Data integration is really where everything begins and ends."

Prof. Julien Mercier from L'Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) is studying educational research. His lab is looking at refined brain information over time, involving the cognition and the affect of the learner.
