Corrigendum Corrigendum for “Revisiting the safety of aspartame” by Arbind Kumar Choudhary and Etheresia Pretorius Nutrition Reviews. 2017; 75(9): 718–730 In the version of the article that appeared online ahead of print on August 31, 2017, the following text appeared: The consumption of higher dosages of aspartame (> 40 mg/kg/d) is toxic to the brain, as it results in prolonged exposure 56–60,62–64,114,115 to oxidative stress. An author of reference 62 called attention to a mistaken interpretation of the cited work and the article was temporarily removed from the online platform for investigation. The text was revised as follows and the article was reposted online on October 3, 2017: 56–60,62–64 The consumption of higher dosages of aspartame (> 40 mg/kg/d) on the brain was also previously studied. 56–60,63–64 Results suggest that higher aspartame dosages may result in changed enzyme activities. It was also found, in an in vivo voltammetry study that aspartame decreases evoked extracellular dopamine levels in the rat brain. Brain areas af- fected by aspartame may include the cerebral cortex, hypothalamus and hippocampus, as shown in a paper by Iyyaswamy and Rathinasamy in 2012. Areas like the hippocampus and medial prefrontal cortex play important roles in memory 114,115 and decision making. This corrigendum is intended for readers who may have read the online version of the article that was posted on August 31, 2017. The print version of the article and the present online version contain the corrected text. The authors regret the initial misinterpretation. V C The Author(s) 2018.
