Rapid Evidence Accumulation During Brand Choice: an Eye-Tracking Analysis

We show that eye movements reflect fundamental, fast preference formation processes and predict choice well before it is implemented. Specifically, eye fixations and brand saccades rather than other types of saccades predict choice. Ownership effects influence brand choice via increased brand saccades, not eye fixations or other saccade types.
