If you've already started your Christmas shopping - take note of this bit of retail research: You only have 40 minutes to make rational decisions!
Scientists at Bangor University have been using brain scanners to find out more about how we shop, and there are some surprising results - as Ian Lang has been finding out.
You've been sharing your views about the brain scanner which will be used to examine shopper's behaviour.

This is a step too far. There's real medical issues that need funding, why not donate the funds to a medical issue rather than shopping?

I agree, there are far needier medical issues that could benefit from that money.

Big Brother gone mad!!
Dr Jonathan Deacon is a marketing expert at the University of South Wales. He says that using a brain scanner to examine shopper's behaviour could help businesses to make more informed decisions about where they put their products, and could remove the problem of too much choice in the supermarket.
Supermarket shoppers are to be brain-scanned to test their reactions to promotions and special offers in a major project led by Bangor University.
As part of the test, shoppers will see a full range of supermarket products on a screen in front of them and they are asked to make normal shopping choices from a shopping list while faced with a wide range or promotions and special offers.
The aim is to identify which part of the brain is involved in making choices by measuring blood flow and brain activity.
A hi-tech scanner is being used to test shopper's reactions to promotional material in supermarkets.
The brain-scan project is being led by Bangor University and consumer behavioural experts. The scanner looks at the brain reactions during a simulated grocery shopping experience.
Early research suggests consumers start to make decisions with the emotional part of their brain after 23 minutes in the supermarket.
After 40 minutes, the average time of a weekly visit to the supermarket, the brain shuts down, ceasing to form rational thoughts.
Leading supermarkets are using the research to study shopper's attention spans and that products aren't on offer can be ignored altogether.
Supermarket shoppers are to be brain-scanned as part of a major project to test consumers' reactions to promotions and special offers.
The research is being carried out by psychologists at Bangor University and one of Europe's leading shopping behaviour specialists.
Shoppers will be asked to simulate an £80 grocery shop whilst going through a medical scanner.
Supermarket products will be displayed in front of them, and they'll be asked to make normal shopping choices from a list, while faced with a range of promotions and special offers.
The aim is to identify which part of the brain is involved in making choices, and how capable they are of ignoring brands which surround those on offer.
Early research suggests we use the emotional part of our brain whilst shopping - focusing on value for money.
Senior lecturer in psychology at the University, Dr Paul Mullins said,
"Using advanced brain imaging techniques we hope to get a better understanding of how shoppers respond to special offers.
This also gives us the chance to bring our research on decision making into a real world context."
