Panel A (Intersection Target) for Experiment 2 in Figure 1 in Burnham and Neely (2007) is incorrect. As correctly stated in the Method section, the distractor (S) should have appeared in the location diametrically opposite to the intersection's location (i.e., the same location in which it appears in panel A for Experiment 1). We also note a confound in Experiment 2 (brought to our attention by Glenn Sanders) that was an unintended consequence of the target and a single distractor appearing in locations on the circular target array used in Experiment 1, with the other six distractors appearing at random locations. If only the target had occupied a position on the circular array, whenever a letter appeared at the Intersection or Line-only location it would necessarily have been the target. Hence, a distractor was always presented in another potential target position to discourage participants from focusing attention on the Intersection and Line-only locations. …
