Course objectives
The course deals with a relatively new discipline called neuromarketing, which began developing abroad at the beginning of the new millenium. The goal of the course is to acquaint the students not only with the history and origin of neuromarketing but especially with its nature, principles and methods. Followingly, the students will be acqauinted with medical diagnostic methods, for example the brain EEG, heart rate activity or muscle tension, which are usually used in neuromarketing. Further there will be mentioned related terms from somatology, psychology, neuropsychology, sociology, marketing and other scientific fields, which neuromarketing as a multi-science discipline is based on. The course will also pursue the most suitable methods for quantitative and qualitative research, which are possible to apply for the evaluation and interpretation of neuromarketing measurement findings. Due to the use of possible mathematical-statistical methods basic software equipment suitable for evaluation will be introduced. Simultaneously, the students will be acquainted with the basic possibilities of application of psychology and its methods in neuromarketing. Also, neuromarketing and its advantages and disadvantages will be introduced from the point of view of the consumers and firms, including the development of perception of neuromarketing by these groups. The focus of the course will be also on ethics and the ethical code of neuromarketing in terms of the field as such. After successful completion of the course the student will: • be able to explain the basic principles and nature of neuromarketing including its advantages and disadvantages for the consumers and firms • be able to understand the basics of selected diagnostic methods suitable for neuromarketing research • be able to evaluate the suitability of selected methods for evaluation and interpretation of data in neuromarketing • be acquainted with the possibilities of psychology application in neuromarketing • know the basic ethical rules for neuromarketing research
