Abstract :

Hawkins' (1970) article on subliminal stimulation has been used for over 15 years as empirical evidence that subliminal advertising can directly affect consumption-relevant behavior. Our study presents new evidence that casts doubt on Hawkins' conclusion that "a simple subliminal stimulus can serve to arouse a basic drive." (Reproduced by permission of the publisher.)
