With reference to the content of an abstract reflecting its title and making sense, the researchers use "Unconscious" in the title and "unconscious" and "nonconscious" in the content of the abstract, without clarification.

With reference to the use of the present tense, the researchers clearly believe that their results generalise, in spite of the lack of an indices of test-retest reliability and inter-rater reliability for the clinical signs, and without any consideration of dominance.

With reference to the content of an article making sense, there was a saline control in the first experiment. There was a saline control in the second experiment given the results in Figure 6C, but in the text the researchers state: "In the second set of experiments, carbachol was injected first, and it was followed by an injection of muscimol (10mM) or carbachol followed by saline." What the researchers actually did, given the results in Figure 6C, was to give an injection of carbachol followed by either muscimol or saline. There was no saline control in the third experiment, so that scopolamine was followed by bicucciline or by carbachol, but not by saline, and the researchers' description is again confusing, relative to their results in Figure 9, for which see the article.

The researchers identified 191 individual neurones in six rats and then performed statistical tests that assumed the neurones were independent individuals.

With reference to consistent language, in the abstract the researchers refer to "feedforward neurons", then to "feedback interneurons" and then to "feedforward inhibitory interneuron activity". In the article, the researchers refer to "neurons" and "units" in the same paragraph, and to "cells" in Figure 4 which accompanies that paragraph. Perhaps relatedly, in the Materials and Methods of the article, the researchers state that "Cells and glutamate ejection sites were not always located anatomically...".

The researchers use different language and different logic to describe the same procedure in the abstract and in the article. Two groups of rats, one trained and the other untrained, were kept in the waiting cage for a variable time before testing. This procedure is described in the abstract as evaluation of "...anticipatory responses to catecholamine efflux..." whereas in the article it is described as "a control for the effect of conditioning on PFC catecholamine levels...". But the untrained group was already a control for the effect of conditioning on PFC catecholamine levels.
