  1. Processed data: ANOVA results replicating ERP N2, P3, and LP effects reported in the original study by Missana et al. [60] using the novel preprocessing steps taken in this secondary data analysis in study 1. Rejected ICA components: We find no significant differences across conditions in the ICA components rejected during preprocessing, suggesting these data were correctly rejected as artifacts
