Neural Responses to Functional and Experiential Ad Appeals: Explaining Ad Effectiveness

We explore how insights from neuroimaging techniques (fMRI) can advance our understanding of how functional and experiential ad appeals in television commercials are processed by consumers. Findings reveal that functional and experiential ad appeals evoke responses in different brain regions, and that activity in these regions relates to ad effectiveness.
