A corrigendum on
Mental State Understanding and Moral Judgment in Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder

by Margoni, F., and Surian, L. (2016). Front. Psychol. 7:1478. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2016.01478

We realized that Figure 1 was misleading. The figure showed the mechanisms underlying the moral judgment of attempted harm cases in individuals with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD). However, it would be more in line with the current studies, that primarily presented ASD individuals with cases of accidental harm, to show in the figure the ASD individuals' processing of accidental harm. Therefore, we replaced “Attempted Harm” with “Accidental Harm” in the top boxes, and we also changed accordingly the bottom boxes. The authors apologize for the mistake.
