A corrigendum on
The role of prefrontal catecholamines in attention and working memory

by Clark, K. L., and Noudoost, B. (2014). Front. Neural Circuits 8:33. doi: 10.3389/fncir.2014.00033

On Page 4, second column, first paragraph, the sentence currently reading (errors in bold):

“One group of PFC neurons, which included all the modulated narrow-spiking, putatively inhibitory neurons, was inhibited by DA; these showed short onset latency of DA effects (~ 10 ms), with no change in signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) or inter-trial variability. A second set of prefrontal neurons was excited by DA application, displaying an increase in SNR and decrease in inter-trial variability; this effect was slower (~ 200 ms) and observed only in broad-spiking, putatively pyramidal neurons.”

Both instances of “ms” (milliseconds) in this sentence should be changed to seconds, “s.” Correct text will read:

“One group of PFC neurons, which included all the modulated narrow-spiking, putatively inhibitory neurons, was inhibited by DA; these showed short onset latency of DA effects (~ 10 s), with no change in signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) or inter-trial variability. A second set of prefrontal neurons was excited by DA application, displaying an increase in SNR and decrease in inter-trial variability; this effect was slower (~ 200 s) and observed only in broad-spiking, putatively pyramidal neurons.”
