This relatively new discipline, approximately a decade in the making, leverages the measurement methods of Neuroscience, primarily EEG (Electroencephalogram), Biometrics, Facial Coding, Eye Tracking and Implicit Reaction Time to bridge the learning of traditional conscious market research techniques, to provide a comprehensive perspective on consumer response and intent as was never before available, but widely longed for.
Neuromarketing leverages multidisciplinary knowledge, taking into consideration Cognitive Psychology, Neuro Economics and so on
To consider human response and behaviour in as complete a way as possible in a consumer context.
As an approach to market research, the industry has seen a number of new boutique companies spring to life specialising in Neuromarketing, as well as the large leading research firms such as Ipsos and Nielsen create dedicated Neuromarketing Centres of Excellence. Neuromarketing now has a dedicated professional organisation, The Neuromarketing Science and Business Association (www.nmsba.com) and is a featured topic at many industry conferences and workshops.

Ipsos Encyclopedia - Evaluation
Definition: An evaluation is a systematic collection and analysis of data in order to assess the strengths and weaknesses of a project, programme or policy.

The evaluation can be performed before the project has started (ex ante), as it is on-going or when it is completed (ex post).
