NeuroMarketing Main Goals

knowledge provided by NeuroMarketing will help marketers create products and services.

What is Buyology?

is where science and marketing meet. bears witness to an historic meeting between neuroscientists and marketing experts.

Daimler Chrysler
A DaimlerChrysler study in Ulm showed pictures of 66 different cars: 22 sports cars, 22 sedans and 22 small cars to 12 men, with an average age of 31, as they lay in a scanner. Far more than the other models, sports cars excited areas of the brain associated with reward and reinforcement. Among the sports cars that generated

Coke vs. Pepsi

In a study from the group of Read Montague published in 2004; 67 people had their brains scanned while being given the Pepsi Challenge, a blind taste test of Coca Cola and Pepsi; After testing ,50% choose Pepsi and it tended to produce a stronger response than Coke in the brain's prefrontal cortex (region thought to process feelings of reward); When the subjects were told they were drinking Coke, said that Coke tasted better; their brain activity had also changed. The lateral prefrontal cortex, an area of the brain that scientists say governs high-level cognitive powers, and the hippocampus, an area related to memory, were now being used, indicating that the consumers were thinking about Coke and relating it to memories

Neuromarketing will be far more socially
welcome for applications that focus on

products and causes with a clear social

benefit - applications like road safety

messages and persuading people to give
