Correction: Severe depression is associated with increased microglial quinolinic acid in subregions of the anterior cingulate gyrus: evidence for an immune-modulated glutamatergic neurotransmission?
Journal of Neuroinflammationvolume 10, Article number: 799 (2013)
After publication of the article  an error in figure 3 was noticed. The P-values denoted in figure 3a (sACC: P= 0.003 and aMCC: P= 0.015) are in fact the results from the second analysis which are denoted correctly in figure 3b (relating to the diagnostic subgroups MDD versus controls). The accurate corresponding values for figure 3a should be sACC: P= 0.006 and aMCC: P= 0.043. See Figure 1.
The interpretation of results and the conclusions drawn are not affected as the level of significance is the same (sACC: P< 0.01 and aMCC: P< 0.05). Accordingly, the proper summary of results in the abstract and results section is:
"Depressed patients had a significantly increased density of QUIN-positive cells in the sACC (P= 0.006) and the aMCC (P= 0.043) compared to controls."
The authors apologize for this inadvertence and any inconvenience caused.
