Reason for Corrigendum:
In the originally published article, the scatterplots for Reasoning were incorrect in Figures 1, 2, although the reported statistics were accurate. The corrected Reasoning scatterplots appear in Figures 1, 2 below. This error does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The authors regret the mistake.
Figure 1. Relationship between busyness and episodic memory, working memory, processing speed, reasoning, and crystallized knowledge in adults aged 50–89.
Figure 2. Relationship between busyness and episodic memory, working memory, processing speed, reasoning, and crystallized knowledge in adults aged 50–89, after controlling for age.
