Methods for Consumer Research, Volume 2 brings together world leading experts in global consumer research to give a fully comprehensive state-of-the-art coverage of emerging methodologies and their innovative application.
The first section of the book puts consumer research in-context with coverage of immersive techniques and virtual reality as well as the evaluation of foods within meals. The next section looks at health-related Issues in consumer science with chapters on food intake, satiety and satiation as well as wellbeing. Section three looks into physiological measurements within the context of consumer research. Designing studies for specific populations including children and the elderly is the focus of section four, before the book concludes with looking specifically at consumer research in non-food products.
In conjunction with the first volume which covers new approaches to classical methodology, Methods for Consumer Research is an invaluable reference for academics working in the fields of in sensory and consumer science, psychology, marketing and nutrition. And with examples of the methodology being applied throughout it will serve as a practical guide to research and development managers in both food and non-food companies.
