Table 2 Two-sample t tests of week 2 control trials and week 2 trained trials.

Hypothesis testing was performed in R (43) by comparing the means of the control group with the means of the trained group. Error and ergodicity—measured as the distance from ergodicity—were the only measures that revealed a significant improvement in the mean between the trained group and the control group. Note that the df for success rate is 31 because there is only one rate per participant.
