Abstract: Abstract Advances and growth in the use of neurosensory methods of cognitive research are resulting in changes in the conduct of many marketing studies. This trend offers much promise for research but also requires caution so that methodological appropriateness and limitations are correctly recognized. In this paper, we discuss opportunities and cautions for neurosensory research into the customer experience. We specifically discuss two popular methods; eye-tracking and facial expression analysis. We suggest that researchers should recognize that these methods are best considered laboratory-based and that environmental conditions play a large role in influencing studies.
