A corrigendum on
Bayesian reasoning with ifs and ands and ors

by Cruz, N., Baratgin, J., Oaksford, M., and Over, D. E. (2015). Front. Psychol. 6:192. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2015.00192

In the article “Bayesian reasoning with ifs and ands and ors,” by Nicole Cruz, Jean Baratgin, Mike Oaksford, and David E. Over (Frontiers in Psychology, 2015, Vol. 6, Art. 192), on page 6, Figure 2, the x-axis in both panels would have to read “1, 2, 4, 3” in order to correctly represent the figure. Rearranging the figure to retain an x-axis labeling in ascending order, the corrected Figure 2 is displayed as follows.


Figure 2. Observed vs. chance coherence for the four inferences of Experiment2, (A) for the statements and (B) for the inferences task. Inferences 1 and 2 are and-to-if inferences. The first has the conjunction p and q as single premise, the second has p and q as two separate premises. Inferences 3 and 4 are and-elimination inferences. The first has prototypical, and the second counter-prototypical content for the scenario. See Table 1 for the precise logical form of the inferences. Error bars show 95% CI.
