In this chapter, we take a tour through the human nervous systems to understand how our bodies produce the signals that neuromarketing measures. We look closely at ten signals from the body and the brain. For each, we describe the major technologies used to capture these signals, and then explain how measuring them can help us understand consumer responses, decisions, and actions. The tour covers a lot of territory, because the brain sciences have bequeathed to neuromarketing a treasure-trove of advanced measurement techniques, most of which have been applied and refined through decades in medical and academic research.
