BASES Neuro

Create superior brand communication, packaging, and product experiences by directly measuring consumer response from the brain.

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.
