Reason for Corrigendum:
Due to an oversight by the authors, Figures 3, 4 were switched. Figure 3 displays the results of Experiment 1 (Mandarin-English bilingual infants) and Figure 4 displays the results of Experiment 2 (Mandarin monolingual infants). The authors apologize for this mistake. This error does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.
Figure 3. Fixation times to the visual stimulus for Same, Switch (similar), and Switch (distinct) trials in 12-13-month-old bilingual infants (error bars: SEM).
Figure 4. Fixation times to the visual stimulus for Same, Switch (similar), and Switch (distinct) trials in 12-13-month-old Mandarin monolingual infants (error bars: SEM).
