Since publication, three errors have been highlighted: (1) Two fetal recordings were excluded from the final sample due to technical issues resulting in corruption of the scan at the source. The final sample and analysis remains unchanged. (2) A typographical error in the reported equation from Del Giudice (2011) was incorporated into the “Method Details” section. The actual calculation utilized in the original paper was the correct equation from Del Giudice (2011). (3) A statement related to normal distribution of the data has been removed from the “Quantification and Statistical Analysis” section. The original paper used non-parametric analyses, which are unaffected. These errors have now been corrected in the article online. The authors apologize for these errors and any confusion that has resulted.
