Paul Sharp, the lead author, noticed two errors in the naming of variables in two the key equations in the article.

Equation 6 is incorrect. The equation in the published article read::

(6) [QMBt+1(press=g)QMBt+1(press=j)]=[βMBrewardP(f=reward|press=g)tβMBpunishP(f=punish|press=g)tβMBrewardP(f=reward|press=j)tβMBpunishP(f=punish|press=j)t][01]

The correction to equation (6) is as follows:

(6) [QGPt+1(press=g)QGPt+1(press=j)]=[βGPrewardP(f=reward|a=pressg)tβGPpunishP(f=punish|a=pressg)tβGPrewardP(f=reward|a=pressj)tβGPpunishP(f=punish|a=pressj)t]

Equation 8 also also had a slight error in how the action variable was named. It is now consistent with how all other equations reflect the action taken. The original equation in the article was:

(8) P(a=press j)=eQIntegrated(press=j)eQIntegrated(press=j)+eQIntegrated(press=g)

The equation is now correction to read:

(8) P(press= j)=eQIntegrated(press=j)eQIntegrated(press=j)+eQIntegrated(press=g)

We apologize for any confusion this might have caused.
