  • Brain activity measurements with Emotiv Epoch+ electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • Analysis of gazepaths with Tobii Pro X3-120 Eye Tracker


Each respondent will be equipped with a 14 channel wireless EEG headset and asked to watch a twenty minutes documentary interrupted by three commercial breaks to simulate the natural viewing of ads. This protocol allows us to monitor and analyze viewers’ true emotional responses toward a commercial.


Through brain frequency distribution and lateralization, we can evaluate which scenes are able to grab users’ attention and provides them an emotionally rich memorable experience. Eye tracker and electroencephalogram can be used along with other sensors to objectively measure affective and cognitive states.
