Powerful neuroscience insights to elevate your brand
BASES has been partnering with the world’s leading brands to optimize brand communication, packaging, and product experiences for the last 10+ years. Our approach (formerly offered under Nielsen Consumer Neuroscience) uses real neuroscience and our measures are valid, reliable, and linked to in-market outcomes.
How it works
Eligible consumers are recruited to a BASES Neuro lab. As they see content (ad, pack, or interact with the product), 32 EEG sensors directly measure brain response 500 times per second. This data is paired with eye-tracking to understand where consumers are looking and how the brain is responding.
What we measure
How engaging and salient is the content or experience?
We help you understand the impact of the marketing asset in the brain by directly measuring emotional motivation, memory, and attention brain systems. These measures are reported overall, relative to a database, and where relevant, on a second-by-second basis to pinpoint strengths and opportunity areas.
Does it strategically cue my brand and key equities?
Our patented approach measures nonconscious associations to key messages and brands. Without asking questions, we reveal how well your content distinctively activates your brand, and how strongly it’s tapping into communication goals.
More signs = more sales?
Think again – when less may be more
NIQ BASES research was recently featured in the Neuromarketing Yearbook 2023
In-store and front-of-store signage represent a crucial point of consumer contact – but sometimes less is more.
Leveraging EEG and eye-tracking methods, we helped a major retailer move beyond trial-and-error to data-driven decisions about future displays.
The ninth edition of the Neuromarketing Yearbook is a comprehensive publication filled with the latest research studies, expert insights, and case studies from top neuromarketing professionals across the globe
