    The first (trial edition of the) Behavioral Café, a networking drink to meet neuro-minded people, was organized in Utrecht, the Netherlands. It was a very nice gathering of anyone interested in the topic of neuromarketing. So we will add this service to our offer.

    The next Behavioral Café will take place on November 19, 2015 in many places around the world. Local chairs will play a key role in hosting it, but if your country is not represented yet, we can support you hosting a BC in your city. Follow our newsletter or contact office@nmsba.com for more information.

    Health Warning Messages More Effective When Showing That Smokers Harm Other People

    After months of designing the study, collecting data and  processing the data it, the NAS Project has come to an end. Find the results below.

    By combining traditional research methods with implicit Reaction Time based ones, the study came with two findings which showed that using implicit measures strengthens the result of traditional research.

    1. Pictorial health warning messages are more effective than text messages only, and this is a culturally independent finding. In general, warning with pictures reached higher scores on the declarative level and at the same time the certainty of those opinions is elevated. Moreover, even if textual warnings were evaluated equally high in declarations as pictorial warnings, on emotional level warnings containing pictures are still more convincing therefore attitudes toward them are more certain, as revealed by neuro Reaction Time implicit measure.

    2. Communication oriented toward harm done to self and others is more effective than warnings focused on smokers themselves only. Again, this outcome is strong and culturally independent.

    The NAS Project also shows, that the data gathered solely by explicit declarative methods provide clear insights only in 50% of cases. However, applying Reaction Time measures enriches this score significantly: over 25% additional insights can be derived thanks to combining explicit and implicit methods and therefore more findings can be identified. It proves that application of combined explicit and implicit measures is beneficial when looking for the most effective solution and identifying drivers

    Health Warning Messages More Effective When Showing That Smokers Harm Other People

    Barcelona - March 25, 2015

    This is the conclusion of a pro-bono study that used neuromarketing techniques, initiated by the Neuromarketing Science & Business Association(NMSBA). The ‘Neuro Against Smoking (NAS) Project’ is an international study supporting a tobacco free environment and healthy lifestyle.

    The remarkable part of this research lies in the way it was conducted. The study brings new valuable insights to the existing discussion on cigarettes warnings by integrating traditional survey methods with implicit measures - Reaction Time - which allows to explore consumers’ impulsive and automatic attitudes, provided by NEUROHM.

    By combining traditional research methods with implicit Reaction Time the study came with two findings which showed that using implicit measures strengthens the result of traditional research.

    • 1.       Pictorial health warning messages are more effective than text messages only, and this is a culturally independent finding. In general, warning with pictures reached higher declarative scores and at the same time the certainty of those opinions is elevated. Moreover, even if textual warnings were evaluated equally high in declarations as pictorial warnings, on emotional level warnings containing pictures are still more convincing therefore attitudes toward them are more certain, as revealed by neuro Reaction Time measure.
    • 2.       Communication  oriented toward harm done to self and others is more effective than warnings focused only on smokers’ health. Again, this outcome is strong and culturally independent.  

    The NAS Project also shows, that the data gathered solely by explicit declarative methods provide clear insights only in 50% of cases. However, applyingReaction Time measures enriches this score significantly:  over 25% additional insights can be derived thanks to combining explicit and implicit methods and therefore more findings can be identified. It proves that application of combined explicit and implicit measures is beneficial when looking for the most effective solution and identifying drivers

    These findings  not only support actions initiated by the WHO – e.g. introducing pictorial warnings - but also suggests that pictorial messages should be carefully selected to maximize their effectiveness).

     The NAS Project promotes healthy lifestyle, supports the tobacco free environment and thus helps societies and governments in their fight against smoking.  The test was held in 24 countries, spanning 6 continents.

    The Centre for Applied Intelligence, a new think tank dedicated to the science of behavior change, launches today.

    The Centre for Applied Intelligence, which launches today, is a cross-discipline think tank that will harness the power of words and speech, conducting primary research in all areas of verbal messaging.

    The Centre for Applied Intelligence launches at a crucial time for the field: academic research into the psychology of behaviour and persuasion has mushroomed, but there are only a handful of teams distilling and transmitting that new research for the audiences who need it. Research needs to have impact, and the Centre for Applied Intelligence will deliver that. 

    In addition to primary research, the Centre for Applied Intelligence promotes and facilitates the work of other professionals and academics in this field. Ultimately its work will better define the systems and processes inherent within truly effective communication.

    The Centre for Applied Intelligence will organise regular events, publish papers by its staff and by external experts, and host a podcast with notable thinkers and communication practitioners. The Centre for Applied Intelligence’s first priority is the development and refinement of models of behaviour change, a programme titled Rapid Audience Insight Diagnostics (RAID). 

    The Centre for Applied Intelligence’s Head of Programmes, Tom Wein, explained:

    “We need to reach those who need to know. All our output will be tailored for busy practitioners and decision-makers who need the latest research right now.  We want to discover interesting things, but we want even more to show how it would be useful to you.”

    The Centre for Applied Intelligence has been established as the research partner to strategic communications agency, Verbalisation Ltd. Sven Hughes, the founder of both the Centre for Applied Intelligence and Verbalisation Ltd, said:

    “Too much communication is founded on guesses and assumptions. We know there is a better way. The Centre’s research will understand the stickiness of content, quantify relevance and resonance and ultimately show us how to calibrate compelling conversation. That is enormously valuable for Verbalisation, and for the industry as a whole.”

    The Centre for Applied Intelligence’s experts are available for comment on stories with a behaviour change or messaging aspect. The Centre for Applied Intelligence welcomes submitted articles, new conversations and input from those working on parallel tracks.
