From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

David Lewis, a French-born neuropsychologist, is director of research at, and co-founder of, Mindlab International a commercial research company based at the University of Sussex near Brighton in the UK. Mindlab International, which conducts a wide range of studies in Europe, the USA and Canada, specialises in researching mental and physical functioning under real-world conditions.

He has a first class honours degree in psychology and biology from the University of Westminster and a doctorate from the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Sussex, where he lectured in clinical psychology and psychopathology before setting up his own research organisation. He is the author of more than thirty books covering a wide range of psychological topics, a lecturer and Sony award-winning broadcaster for a BBC Radio 5 Live series on the psychological relationships between sports stars and their mentors and trainers.

David Lewis has been dubbed the ‘father of neuromarketing’ as he was one of the first psychologists to recognise the potential of measuring brain activity as a means of understanding the responses of consumers. These studies started in the early 1980’s while he was a doctoral student at the University of Sussex and required him to develop both the hardware and software necessary to monitor and record electrical activity in the brain. In the early 90’s his work was featured on BBC TV’s Tomorrow’s World but it would be more than a decade before the importance of the insights provided by such studies became widely accepted.
