New analyses of the data in this study (Salet et al., 2021, Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, have led us to reinterpret our main finding. Previously, we had attributed better performance for targets appearing at regular intervals versus irregular intervals to “temporal statistical learning.” That is, we surmised that this benefit for the regular intervals arises because participants implicitly distilled the regular 3000 ms interval from the otherwise variable environment (i.e., irregular intervals) to predict future (regular) targets. The analyses presented in this Addendum, however, show that this benefit can be attributed to ongoing “temporal preparation” rather than temporal statistical learning.
