A Stupid Mistake in Smart Writing

Two super respected people in a very respected journal make a bad mistake right in the abstract. Help me count the number of factors that are involved in the interaction they are talking about. Where is the missing fifth one?

I don't want to be a smart one, or the critical one going around and bugging people among typos they make. But this is just nuts when you are trying to summarize others' research or operationalize their explanations for a quantitative analysis. All the worse, the ideas laid out further are really good...
