RESEARCH SKILLS
• Neuroimaging: functional MRI, structural MRI (morphometry, volumetry), electroencephalography (EEG), Positron Emission Tomography (PET);
• Neurophysiology: Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), Eye-tracking including pupil dilation, Heart Rate Variability, Respiration, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS);
• Behavioural assessment: E-Prime, neuropsychological assessment, psychological assessment, personality assessment (NEO-PI-R and MMPI/MMPI-2), behavioural economics.

INVENTIONS
• NeuroVision – A fully automatic analysis of images and videos that determines the visual saliency, complexity, luminance, colour density, face density and properties, and many more features. Based on computational neuroscience algorithmic modelling.
• Neuromarketing Omnibus – A revolutionary method to test customers’ responses to ads, by using validated neurometrics, scalable set-up, and cloud based analyses, combined with an intuitive online user interface.
• Customer Tracker – A novel and disruptive way to use wireless technology to non-intrusively assess person movements in store environments, outdoors and other areas (e.g. airports, stadiums), to better understand visitor density and movements.
• The NeuroMobile package – a portable solution for assessing responses in mobile environments, including eye-tracking and dry electrode EEG.
• NeuroEquity – Neuropsychology based memory scale to assess brand value and equity.
• Neuromarketing Task Force – Protocol based methods to study customers’ unconscious and direct emotional and cognitive responses in challenging settings, including in-store, mobile and augmented reality.
• NeuroCinematics – Standardised solution for assessing viewers’ emotional and cognitive responses to movies, series and documentaries.
• NeuroGaming – A protocol based solution to study gamers’ perceptual, cognitive and emotional responses during games.
