To Have Or to Do: the Role of Implicit Theories

In three functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies, involving 35 TV commercials and 18 movie-trailers, we uncover a robust way to extract neural information that predicts out-of-sample consumer ratings. Even when controlling for in-sample self-report ratings, neural information still explained additional variance in out-of-sample ratings across the three studies.
