After publication, we realized that the text incorrectly described the quiescent period as 200-500 ms in length, whereas the mice actually experienced a quiescent period of 400-700 ms.
This error neither affects the results nor the conclusions of the article but should be corrected in order to ensure the exact replicability of the experimental design. We regret this inaccuracy and have corrected the manuscript as described below.
We have corrected the text by replacing the duration of quiescent period with the accurate duration in the two locations where it was described:
Corrected text (in Results section):
“Trials began after the mouse held the wheel still for 0.4–0.7 s”
“Trials began after the mouse held the wheel still for 0.2–0.5 s”
Corrected text (in Materials and methods subsection, “Habituation, training and experimental protocol”):
"At the beginning of each trial, the mouse was required to not move the wheel for a quiescence period of 400–700ms (randomly drawn from an exponential distribution with a mean of 550ms).
“At the beginning of each trial, the mouse was required to not move the wheel for a quiescence period of 200–500ms (randomly drawn from an exponential distribution with a mean of 350ms).”
The article has been corrected accordingly.
