Confidence intervals: What they are and are not

Over at the Psychonomic Society Featured Content blog, there are several new articles outlining some of our work on confidence intervals published previously in Psychonomic Bulletin & Review. In a three-part series, Steve Lewandosky and Alexander Etz lay out our case for why confidence intervals are not what people think they are. I've written enough about confidence intervals lately, so I'll just link you to their articles.

Check it out, and don't forget that Morey et al (2015, 2015a) are open access!
