Event Navigation

eyeConsumer researchers have used eye tracking for studying diverse areas such as advertising, packaging, store layout and decision making. Despite the diverse areas of application, most of the research has centered around two questions: First, what are the drivers of eye movements in consumer behavior and second, what are the consequences of eye movements on subsequent behaviors? The talk will reflect on the use of eye tracking in consumer research as well as the two aforementioned questions.
