Stets, Manuela and Stahl, Daniel and Reid, Vincent M. (2012) A meta-analysis investigating factors underlying attrition rates in infant ERP studies. Developmental Neuropsychology, 37 (3). pp. 226-252. ISSN 8756-5641Full text not available from this repository.
In this meta-analysis, we examined interrelationships between characteristics of infant event-related potential (ERP) studies and their attrition rates. One-hundred and forty-nine published studies provided information on 314 experimental groups of which 181 provided data on attrition. A random effects meta-analysis revealed a high average attrition rate of 49.2%. Additionally, we used meta-regression for 178 groups with attrition data to analyze which variables best explained attrition variance. Our main findings were that the nature of the stimuli-visual, auditory, or combined as well as if stimuli were animated-influenced exclusion rates from the final analysis and that infant age did not alter attrition rates.
