Abstract

In this study we investigated the cerebral activity of a group of Eastern people during the observation of a Western and an Eastern version of the same TV commercial advertising a very popular smartphone. By comparing the electroencephalographic (EEG) signals in theta, alpha and heart rate (HR) activity of the population investigated, we estimated and compared the levels of memorization, attention, pleasantness and motion perceived. Results present and increase of the pleasantness and emotion while watching particular scenes of interest of the Eastern version of the commercial. These findings suggest that this kind of technology is able to track variation of the cerebralactivity related to cognitive and emotional processing across TV commercials. Moreover, there is the possibility to investigate frame segments of particular interest for marketers hat could be properly adapted according to the cultural context in which the advertising campaign will be promoted.
