Here, Dr. Ramsøy led a group of researchers that achieved numerous high impact journal publications, including Science, PNAS and Psychological Science. During this period, Dr. Ramsøy established Neurons Inc as a spin-off from CBS and the university hospital, and as an incubation process through Lowe’s Innovation Labs in Silicon Valley. Today, Dr. Ramsøy is regarded as one of the leading scholars and practitioners in applied neuroscience, including neuromarketing, neuroeconomics and related disciplines. He has published numerous scientific papers, and has written the first and still only textbook on neuromarketing and consumer neuroscience. Dr. Ramsøy is a consultant for Fortune 500 companies on employing neuroscience to business, and on innovation, and he frequents the corners of this planet doing workshops, seminars and establishing university curricula on applied neuroscience.
