I. Session 1: Using the Brain in Business
In the last decade, we are experiencing a revolution in the advance in neuroscience research. Neuroscientists are improving their understanding of brain functions and are, at times, able to predict choices, behavior and decisions processes. In this talk, Dr. Cerf will describe some of the recent advances in neuroscience and focus on the ways by which they can inform the fields of economics, marketing, and management.

Dr. Moran Cerf, Professor of Neuroscience and Business at the Kellogg School of Management and Neuroscience Program, Northwestern University

II. Session 2: TBD

III. Session 3: Bricks and Clicks, Emotions in Retail
The world of retail is changing, but the market’s evolution presents numerous opportunities for all retailers - from e-commerce and brick-and-mortar to a combination of both. How can retailers of all types anticipate the next set of changes and opportunities coming their way? Dr. Carl Marci will discuss the complexity of the human brain and how purchase habits are formed and processed, requiring retailers to be better equipped at addressing consumer needs. “Bricks and Clicks, Emotions in Retail” will include the latest in consumer neuroscience and showcase how personal relevance and emotional engagement to packaging, point-of-sale materials and online visuals are paramount. Retailers today must consider both the conscious and below conscious processing of consumers all along the entire purchase journey to understand how best to influence their buying behaviors. 

Dr. Carl D. Marci,
 Chief Neuroscientist, Nielsen Consumer Neuroscience
