Asarnow, Steffy, and Waldman (1985)offered several further attempts to account for our failure to replicate their span of apprehension results. We evaluated their arguments and found most of them to be without merit. One exception is the fact that Asarnow et al.'s procedure involved nonfoveal presentations of the stimuli, whereas ours did not. We stand, however, by our earlier conclusion that Asarnow et al.'s sample is unusual and that results from it may not be highly generalizable.
