sophisticated knowledge was founded at the Cambridge Innovation Center in Boston/Cambridge, Massachusetts. We are now located in Berlin, Germany. We carry out research and consulting where language and neurobiology meet. Our neurosemantic maps of the USA and Germany connect language, emotions and behavior and thereby serve a better understanding of purchasing decisions of people than ever before. We believe that only interdisciplinary thinking and cooperation can produce the best possible results for our clients. Therefore we combine psychology, anthropology, neurobiology and marketing in order to consult our clients and deliver solutions on the base of the latest research in those fields. The result of our own research are our neurosemantic maps of Germany and the USA where we connect neurobiology and big data for the first time. Our maps show the emotional world created by our language, thus representing the underlying reality of social relations. We connect big data with neurobiology and communication for any brand, product or service. sophisticated knowledge represents an international and diverse team of neuroscientists, historians, brand experts and screen writers and is therefore well prepared to deliver extraordinary results.
