Abstract

We recently argued (McCloskey, Wible, & Cohen, 1988) that the available evidence fails to warrant postulation of a special flashbulb memory mechanism. Although apparently agreeing with our conclusion, Pillemer (1990) criticizes us on a number of grounds. In this reply we address Pillemer's criticisms.
