Poised to revolutionize market research, MindSight® uses a patent-pending applied neuroscience technique to obtain authentic emotional insight from people before their conscious mind can edit responses.

Key benefits of MindSight® include:
- Provides deeper and more authentic insights about the emotions that motivate behavior than traditional or neuromarketing research methods
- Deploys online to large quantitative or smaller qualitative samples
- Enables cost-effective global research that transcends cultural biases and delivers results in real time
