At Nielsen, we strive to provide the most complete understanding of what consumers watch and buy, and Nielsen’s Consumer Neuroscience team is looking for people like you to participate in a paid market research study! This new and innovative field uses academic neuroscience principles to study marketing and advertising content. For a closer look at what you can expect with our studies, continue reading below!
You are eligible to participate in our studies once every 3 to 6 months and will be invited to come back if you qualify for a current study. To check when you last participated with us, please feel free to reach out via phone or email. All new study opportunities are posted timely.
Upon completion of the study, you will be paid CNY150 and above (depending on the stated amount on the study opportunities posts).
Study sessions are typically 45 minutes to 1 hour in length. It’s important that all participants arrive 15 minutes early to sign in, complete participant paperwork, and perform some simple visual/colorblindness exercises.
Please note, if participants arrive 15 minutes past their scheduled appointment time, we cannot guarantee full study participation and compensation.
During the study session, participants will be asked to wear an EEG cap (similar to a swim cap), into which a small amount of leave-in conditioner is applied before snapping in the EEG sensors. Participants will be guided throughout this process by one of our research assistants and will be asked to watch a study presentation while wearing the cap and sensors. The cap and sensors are completely safe and passively pick up your response to the marketing content shown. Participants are expected to pay close attention to the presentation with minimal movement and perform a simple activity using a keypad.
