Negative priming is stronger for task-relevant dimensions: Evidence of flexibility in the selective ignoring of distractor information.


The finding that in selective attention tasks responses to previously ignored stimuli are usually retarded is known as negative priming (NP). In previous studies it has been suggested that NP can depend on behavioural goals--that is, NP was observed only for task-relevant object dimensions. We extend these findings with two experiments demonstrating that… (More)
