Published Formal Comment

Competing interests declared: The present Formal Comment challenges a reanalysis presented by Brown et al., which was critical of an empirical report by the current author and her colleagues that appeared in PLOS ONE in 2015. That 2015 empirical report offered new data that challenged critical statements made previously by Brown et al. regarding a 2013 empirical report by the current author and her colleagues that appeared in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science, USA.
