Amazing Science: Neuroscience Postings

Amazing Science: Neuroscience Postings | psychology | Scoop.it

Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system and has traditionally been a branch of biology. The scope of neuroscience has recently broadened to include approaches to study the molecular, cellular, developmental, structural, functional, evolutionary, computational, and medical aspects of the nervous system. The techniques used by neuroscientists have also expanded enormously, from molecular and cellular studies of individual nerve cells to imaging of sensory and motor tasks in the brain. Recent theoretical advances in neuroscience have also been aided by the study of neural networks.

Cracking the Color Code: What Marketers Need To Know About Color and the Brain

Cracking the Color Code: What Marketers Need To Know About Color and the Brain | psychology | Scoop.it

Michelangelo once said, “A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.” And while most marketers would like to channel their inner Michelangelo when it comes to being creative, the reality is that creating that next great marketing message can be highly dependent on color. Here’s what we know about the brain and color.

People make a subconscious judgment about a person, environment, or product within seconds of initial viewing. Through consumer neuroscience, we now know that color alone can play a pivotal role in a consumer’s overall decision-making process. Color happens not in the eye, but in the brain. There are different processing systems for color than for shape and motion, and even variations between processing systems for different colors. The brain’s response to color is highly complex and emotional. In short, there is a lot going on in your brain when you see red, or any other color for that matter.

Consumer neuroscience has also helped debunk long-standing stereotypes when it comes to color associations. The brain actually responds to different colors often based on survival cues from the earliest days of civilization – for example, green for food, yellow for sunlight, and orange for fire. These associations continue to affect our perception of colors today.

Nowhere is this more apparent than when folks of all creative stripes wait anxiously for Pantone to announce the “Color of the Year.” Through this annual ritual, Pantone strives to identify a particular color that best reflects the current state of society that embodies the leading zeitgeist when it comes to color. The brain responds most automatically to the primary colors. For more nuanced colors, the brain has a more complex response, but the general color family is relevant. So in the wake of Emerald Green being named Pantone’s color of the year, this choice will have an effect on how the brain responds.

Here's how the brain responds to the primary color families...
