In the article that appeared on page 693 of the October 2010 issue of Ear and Hearing, the following should have appeared as the last sentence of the third paragraph in the Introduction:

“Our method is based on a method originally introduced by Wilson and his colleagues in the early 1990s (Wilson et al. 1992; Wilson et al. 1994; Wilson & Dorman 2008, Fig. 6D) as a variation of their virtual channels technique (cf. Wilson & Dorman 2009, pp. 103–108). In turn, Wilson et al.'s (1992) technique is related to Townshend, Cotter, Van Campernolled, and White's (1987) and Townshend and White's (1987) ‘stimulus sharpening’ technique.”
