An attempt was made to replicate a nonmonotonic visual backward masking function that had been reported by Kolers (1962). Neither the replication nor several variations yielded any suggestion of a nonmonotonic masking function. The failure to replicate was attributed to the difference in indicator methodology employed by Kolers and that used in the present study.
