Individual Differences in Marketing Placebo Effects: Evidence From Brain Imaging and Behavioral Experiments

We used a novel automated structural brain imaging approach to determine individual differences of Marketing-Placebo-Effects (MPE) and combined this approach with behavioral experiments. We found that consumers high in reward-seeking, high in need for cognition, and low in somatosensory awareness are more responsive to MPE.
