Two experiments utilizing brief presentations of Stroop and control stimuli failed to show any increase in interference to color naming as exposures were shortened. The results contradict Kleins hypothesis that the delay of naming in the Stroop task results from the time required for restimulation by the relevant color unless it is assumed this restimulation can occur via the iconic image. Basically similar results when the iconic image was terminated with an erasure stimulus, further suggest the inappropriateness of the Klein explanation or else of the belief that an iconic image can be terminated in this fashion. The failure to reproduce high interference of a previous study using brief presentations indicates that some other difference between that study and the previous and present works must account for those results.
