自我信息注意捕获鸡尾酒会效应Self-Related Information Attention Capture Cocktail-Party Effect



Studies of attention capture by self-related information have reached inconsistent results, so there is much debate about whether self-related information can capture attention automatically. Given this, the current paper compared effect of self-face and self-name on attention in different researches. The self-name captured attention when presented at the focus of attention, however, the self-face reached contradictory outcomes when presented at fixation among the different tasks. These results indicate that it should take experimental tasks and the specific features of self-re- lated information into account, when the effect of self-face and self-name on attention is explored. The future research should explore the effect of familiarity on attention capture for self-related information and the processing of attention to self-related information.
