This roundtable session seeks to discuss recent approaches in the field of consumer neuroscience that aim at understanding the neural systems supporting and affecting marketing-relevant behavior. The session brings together researchers currently using neuroscientific methods to investigate questions related to marketing in order to 1) assess the current state of knowledge and 2) discuss directions for future research. The session will begin with a discussion of the marketing-relevant questions that have been investigated within consumer neuroscience, as well as decision neuroscience and neuroeconomics. This will be followed by a discussion to elicit ideas about research future directions.
