Scope of the Report

Neuromarketing is the field of marketing which uses medical technologies such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to study the brain’s responses to marketing stimuli. It is a formal study of the brain's responses to advertising and branding, and the adjustment of those messages based on feedback to elicit even better responses. Researchers use different types of technologies to measure specific types of brain activity in response to advertising messages. With this information, companies get to know about the consumers' decisions making skill as well as the driving force towards their persona. The study covers the market based on application of neuromarketing in various end-user industries and geography.
