In the Results section (pp.1785, left column), please replace the sentences “In particular, RTs for the large-unstructured condition were significantly faster than RTs on the small-unstructured condition. In contrast, RTs for the small-structured condition were significantly faster than RTs on the large-structured condition.” with the following ones:” In particular, RTs for the large-unstructured condition were significantly faster than RTs on the large-structured condition. In contrast, RTs for the small-structured condition were significantly faster than RTs on the small-unstructured condition.

In the Discussion section (pp. 1787), please substitute the sentences “An alternative explanation might reside in the influence exerted by visual features on the perceived numerosity of the stimuli: usually, a dense arrangement of the elements may trigger an overestimation while a sparse arrangement elicits an underestimation of numerosity (Gebuis & Reynvoet, 2012). Since unstructured stimuli are characterized by more densely arranged elements than structured ones (see Fig. 1), unstructured stimuli with large numerosity should yield faster RTs for the right hand than for the left hand (and vice versa for structured stimuli with low numerosity).” with the following ones: “These results are complementary to those of Gebuis and Reynvoet (2012), who found that a dense arrangement of the elements triggered an underestimation of numerosity, whereas a sparse arrangement elicited an overestimation of numerosity. Nevertheless, our results might be interpreted in terms of a Gestalt approach: given their specific arrangement, large-structured stimuli might be perceived as less numerous (and therefore more difficult to be recognized) than unstructured stimuli, which do not convey a specific perceptual organization.
