Abstract: The current study was a meta-analysis that examined differences in selective attention as a function of age, schizotypy and gender. The particular effect examined, negative priming (Tipper, 1985), was the increased response latency for previously ignored information. Results demonstrated that age, schizotypy, and gender all moderated the negative priming effect. The effects of age were the clearest: younger adults showed a stronger negative priming than older adults. The specific effects of schizotypy and gender were less clear. However, results suggested the following: males show stronger negative priming than women, and adults scoring low on a schizotypy show stronger effects than those scoring high.
