Neuronal underpinnings of auditory verbal hallucination remain poorly understood. One suggested mechanism is brain activation that is similar to verbal imagery but occurs without the proper activation of the neuronal systems that are required to tag the origins of verbal imagery in ones mind. Such neuronal systems involve the supplementary motor area. The supplementary motor area has been associated with awareness of intention to make a hand movement, but whether this region is related to the sense of ownership of ones verbal thought remains poorly known. We hypothesized that the supplementary motor area is related to the distinction between ones own mental processing (auditory verbal imagery) and similar processing that is attributed to non-self author (auditory verbal hallucination). To test this hypothesis, we asked patients to signal the onset and offset of their auditory verbal hallucinations during functional magnetic resonance imaging. During non-hallucination periods, we asked the ...
The thesis Auditory Hallucinations in Youth is about auditory hallucinations in children and adolescents (hereafter youth). Experiencing an auditory hallucination means that someone hears something in the absence of an identifiable stimulus (sound). Auditory hallucinations can differ from undefinable sounds or mumbling to hearing clear music and/or hearing voices whispering or shouting. In the case of hearing voices, this is also called auditory verbal hallucinations. Previous research points to the frequent occurrence of auditory hallucinations. However, prevalence rates varied widely. Auditory hallucinations in youth are often transient. Nevertheless, while present, they can cause severe suffering and even be a symptom of psychopathology. Research following this thesis shows that almost one in ten people ever experience an auditory hallucination, with higher rates in children (12.7%) and adolescents (12.4%) than in adults (5.8%) and the elderly (4.5%). About a quarter (23.6%) of young ...
Subject: musical hallucinations From: Diana Deutsch ,ddeutsch(at)UCSD.EDU, Date: Wed, 7 Aug 2002 15:37:11 -0700 A number of researchers have indeed suggested that musical hallucinations constitute the auditory equivalent of the Charles Bonnet syndrome, since they are so frequently associated with hearing loss. However, they also occur in people who have no hearing loss, so this can only be part of the picture. It may account for a subset of the cases, though. Cheers, Diana Deutsch ,All, ,There is a type of visual hallucination that occurs in ,neuropsychiatrically normal individuals that is remarkable because it is ,like normal seeing, but the detail can be greater and have a bizarre ,character, sometimes even amusing. These hallucinations are not under ,voluntary control and when they occur in those with deteriorating visual ,ability it is described as the Charles Bonnet syndrome. Imaging studies ,show that the visual association cortex is active. It might be that the ,imagery mechanism in this ...
This week I am over at Scientific American talking about a topic that just fascinates me, Charles Bonnet Syndrome.

Objective: Whereas auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs) are most characteristic of schizophrenia, their presence has frequently been described in a continuum, ranging from severely psychotic patients to schizotypal personality disorder patients to otherwise healthy participants. It remains unclear whether AVHs at the outer borders of this spectrum are indeed the same phenomenon. Furthermore, specific characteristics of AVHs may be important indicators of a psychotic disorder.. Method: To investigate differences and similarities in AVHs in psychotic and nonpsychotic individuals, the phenomenology of AVHs in 118 psychotic outpatients was compared to that in 111 otherwise healthy individuals, both experiencing AVHs at least once a month. The study was performed between September 2007 and March 2010 at the University Medical Center, Utrecht, the Netherlands. Characteristics of AVHs were quantified using the Psychotic Symptoms Rating Scales Auditory Hallucinations subscale.. Results: The perceived ...
Despite the recent proliferation of scientific, clinical, and narrative accounts of auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs), the phenomenology of voice hearing remains opaque and undertheorized. In this article, we outline an interdisciplinary approach to understanding hallucinatory experiences which seeks to demonstrate the value of the humanities and social sciences to advancing knowledge in clinical research and practice. We argue that an interdisciplinary approach to the phenomenology of AVH utilizes rigorous and context-appropriate methodologies to analyze a wider range of first-person accounts of AVH at 3 contextual levels: (1) cultural, social, and historical; (2) experiential; and (3) biographical. We go on to show that there are significant potential benefits for voice hearers, clinicians, and researchers. These include (1) informing the development and refinement of subtypes of hallucinations within and across diagnostic categories; (2) "front-loading" research in cognitive neuroscience; ...

Investigations of possible mechanisms underlying hallucinations have indicated that abnormal excitation of brain tissue and abnormal regulation of cognitive activity may contribute to hallucinations. The cognitive control deficits in auditory hallucinations are in some ways similar to those in persons with damage to the frontal lobes of the brain. An examination of the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery performance of 10 psychiatric patients with auditory hallucinations, 10 patients with visual hallucinations and 20 patients with no hallucinations showed evidence of general cognitive impairment with a left frontal focus in the auditory group and no evidence of neuropsychological impairment in the visual group. Both self-awareness and control of internal speech involve left frontal mediation and the possible contribution of deficiencies in these functions to the appearance of auditory hallucinations is discussed
A paracusia, or auditory hallucination, is a form of hallucination that involves perceiving sounds without auditory stimulus. A common form of auditory hallucination involves hearing one or more talking voices. This may be associated with psychotic disorders, and holds special significance in diagnosing these conditions. However, individuals without any psychiatric disease whatsoever may hear voices. There are three main categories into which the hearing of talking voices often fall: a person hearing a voice speak ones thoughts, a person hearing one or more voices arguing, or a person hearing a voice narrating his/her own actions. These three categories do not account for all types of auditory hallucinations. Other types of auditory hallucination include exploding head syndrome and musical ear syndrome. In the latter, people will hear music playing in their mind, usually songs they are familiar with. This can be caused by: lesions on the brain stem (often resulting from a stroke); also, sleep ...
Research into hallucinations typically regards them as single sensory or unimodal experiences leading to a comparative neglect of co-occurring multi-sensory hallucinations (MSH). People with psychosis who have visual hallucinations (VH) report high rates of hallucinations in other senses (auditory, olfactory, tactile). However, it is not known if this is similar to other groups who report VH. Consequently, this study explored MSH in four different patient groups who all had current VH. Archival data from standardised assessments of visual hallucinations in people with psychosis (n = 22), eye disease (ED) (n = 82), Lewy body Dementia (LBD) (n = 41), and Parkinsons disease (PD) (n = 41) determined the presence of MSH. People with psychosis and visual hallucinations reported significantly higher rates of MSH (auditory, 73%; tactile, 82%; olfactory/gustatory hallucinations, 27%) than the LBD group (auditory, 21%; tactile, 28%; olfactory/gustatory, 6%), ED (auditory, 1%; tactile, 11%; ...
Scientists Study Music Hallucinations http://www.sciencedaily.com/upi/index.php?feed=Science&article=UPI-1-20050712-12304700-bc-wales-hallucinations.xml [Thanks to Laird for this and the last one.] NEWPORT, Wales, July 12 (UPI) -- Psychiatrists at St. Cadocs Hospital in Wales have issued the largest case-series study ever published concerning musical hallucinations. Although the condition has been known for more than a century, it has rarely been studied, The New York Times reported Tuesday. It is believed musical hallucinations result from malfunctioning brain networks. Dr. Victor Aziz and Dr. Nick Warner analyzed 30 cases of musical hallucination covering 15 years and found in two-thirds of the cases musical hallucinations were the only mental disturbance experienced by the patients. Women tended to suffer musical hallucinations more than men, and the average patient was 78 years old. Religious music was heard in two-thirds of the cases. The researchers noted musical hallucinations differ ...
My primary aim in this article is to provide a philosophical account of the unity of hallucinations, which can capture both perceptual hallucinations (which are subjectively indistinguishable from perceptions) and non-perceptual hallucinations (all others). Besides, I also mean to clarify further the division of labour and the nature of the collaboration between philosophy and the cognitive sciences. Assuming that the epistemic conception of hallucinations put forward by M. G. F. Martin and others is largely on the right track, I focus on two main tasks: (a) to provide a satisfactory phenomenology of the subjective character of perceptions and perceptual hallucinations and (b) to redress the philosophers neglect of non-perceptual hallucinations. More specifically, I intend to apply one of the central tenets of the epistemic conception - that hallucinations can and should be positively characterised in terms of their phenomenological connections to perceptions - to non-perceptual hallucinations ...
Musical ear syndrome (MES) describes a condition seen in people who have hearing loss and subsequently develop auditory hallucinations. "MES" has also been associated with musical hallucinations, which is a complex form of auditory hallucinations where an individual may experience music or sounds that are heard without an external source. It is comparable to Charles Bonnet syndrome (visual hallucinations in visually impaired people) and some have suggested this phenomenon could be included under this diagnosis. Musical hallucinations and MES have only become widely recognizable in the last few decades of research, but there are indications throughout history that have described symptoms of musical hallucinations. The Romantic composer Robert Schumann was said to have heard entire symphonies in his head from which he drew as inspiration for his music, but later in his life this phenomenon had diminished to just a note that played ceaselessly within his head. An alternative explanation is that his ...
MONDAY, Nov. 27, 2017 (HealthDay News) - AVATAR therapy, in which patients who hear voices have a dialogue with a digital representation (avatar) of the presumed persecutor, voiced by the therapist, so that the avatar becomes less hostile and concedes power over the course of therapy, reduces the severity of persistent auditory verbal hallucinations, according to a study published online Nov. 23 in The Lancet Psychiatry.. Tom K.J. Craig, Ph.D., from Kings College London, and colleagues examined the effect of AVATAR therapy on auditory verbal hallucinations among patients aged 18 to 65 years with a clinical diagnosis of a schizophrenia spectrum or affective disorder. One hundred fifty participants were randomized to receive AVATAR therapy or supportive counseling in a 1:1 ratio. Research assessors who were masked to therapy allocation conducted assessments at baseline, 12 weeks, and 24 weeks.. The researchers found that 83 percent of participants met the primary outcome of reduction in auditory ...

Hallucinations are generally defined as an awake, percept-like experience in the absence of the appropriate causative stimulus. One hypothesis is that differential processing in high-level attentional networks produce pathological hallucinations (Shine et al., 2011; Shine et al., 2014), accordingly attentional deployment should alter hallucination processing. To test this we utilized luminance flicker to induce visual hallucinations (Billock & Tsou, 2007) and removed endogenous attention from the flicker-induced hallucination. A white annulus flickering at 8Hz on a black background induced reliable hallucinated content (blobs) that rotated around the annulus. We utilized prior perceptual motion to induce an after-effect in the hallucinated motion, as a means of controlling it. There were 3 conditions, inattention, attention and no stimulus, immediately following the perceptual adaptation motion stimulus. In the inattention condition, a central fixation point was replaced with a rapidly changing ...

A hallucination, in the broadest sense of the word, is a perception in the absence of a stimulus. In a stricter sense, hallucinations are defined as perceptions in a conscious and awake state in the absence of external stimuli which have qualities of real perception, in that they are vivid, substantial, and located in external objective space. The latter definition distinguishes hallucinations from the related phenomena of dreaming, which does not involve wakefulness; illusion, which involves distorted or misinterpreted real perception; imagery, which does not mimic real perception and is under voluntary control; and pseudohallucination, which does not mimic real perception, but is not under voluntary control.[1] Hallucinations also differ from "delusional perceptions", in which a correctly sensed and interpreted genuine perception is given some additional (and typically bizarre) significance.. Hallucinations can occur in any sensory modality - visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory, tactile, ...
The research in the Understanding Hallucinations (UH) Lab is driven by the question how and why the human brain produces hallucinations. The phenomenon of hallucinations is studied using several neuroimaging techniques such as structural (T1-weighted and diffusion-weighted MR imaging) and functional (fMRI and EEG) imaging. This is done in a wide spectrum of psychiatric and neurological diagnoses as well as the general population, in order to understand the transdiagnostic neurobiology of hallucinations. By developing novel assessment tools such as the Questionnaire for Psychotic Experiences we aim to better grasp the phenomenology of hallucinations across disorders and health. Lastly, we study treatment of hallucinations through brain stimulation protocols (TMS, tDCS) and medication trials.. ...
Evers then redirects his focus of attention towards categorizing the disorders etiologies. The first impairment he examines is Hypacusis, a hearing impairment of a conductive or neurosensory nature sometimes described as a partial deafness. In 50% of all patients, hypacusis was a predominant etiologic factor for musical hallucinations. 77% of all patients were females with the average age of 71 (± 15 years). Psychiatric disorders are factors that have been commonly considered as an important element for initiating musical hallucinations; Evers states that of all patients, depression was diagnosed in 45% of them, schizophrenia in 35%, obsessive-compulsive disorder in 10%, and neurotic symptoms in 5%. 68% of all patients were females with the average age of 51 (± 21 years). Focal brain lesions were diagnosed as the fundamental cause of musical hallucinations for a certain number of patients. In 62% of them, lesion was detected in the right hemisphere, while 38% of all patients had lesion ...

Results Our patient developed visual hallucinations in the absence of other features of delirium, soon after her ACE inhibitor therapy had been increased. She had a background of ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke. Her symptom disappeared when the ACE inhibitor was stopped. There have been two case reports of visual hallucinations caused by ACE inhibitors published, and also reports in pharmacovigilance documents, however this side effect is not recognised in the British National Formulary. Three different physiological pathways have been suggested as possible causes for the neuropsychiatric symptoms (visual hallucinations and others, such as severe depression and enhancement of cognition) in the case of ACE inhibitors: A protease action over the enzyme encephalinase, an action over the Corticotrophin Releasing Factor leading to the increase of cortisol and finally, through the direct effect of the suppression of the ACE enzyme in the brain, that can affect circulating levels of Acetylcholine. ...

Warning: The studys authors recommend that anyone with a history of migraines, epilepsy or psychiatric disorders refrain from watching the video below. Hallucinations are, by their nature, hard to study. People struggle to describe what they see, and efforts to have the hallucinator draw their visions seldom adds much precision. So Dr Joel Pearson of the University of New South Wales is excited about the potential of the first method to produce hallucinations that can be objectively measured. Hallucinations caused by psychosis or drugs are usually too complex to measure on a single scale. For more than a century we have known that flickering lights, along with certain combinations of light and dark, can induce visual hallucinations, and these are simpler.. However, Pearson told IFLScience, they are still not simple enough. "Its like trying to study the imagination," Pearson said. To change this, Pearson set out to reduce what is seen to be a single, quantifiable feature. He announced his ...

This article studies the relevance of several clinical symptoms to the hallucinatory experience, considering the role that experiential avoidance may play in this process. The results show that the predisposition to hallucinations is associated with several clinical symptoms. Specifically, depression is the most relevant factor in the predisposition to auditory hallucinations. The factors that best predict a predisposition to visual hallucinations are obsessive compulsive and phobic anxiety symptoms. A factor common to both types is experiential avoidance. These results are in line with several studies that show that hallucinations are associated with diverse clinical symptoms and studies that suggest experiential avoidance as a diagnostic dimension common to various psychological disorders. The theoretical and clinical importance of the acceptance of internal events and their orientation toward the values and desires of persons that hear voices are discussed ...
Dr Powers video was informative and educational and presented many techniques that many of us already implement. However as a long term caregiver for a person with Lewy Body and Parkinsons, I am perplexed at his disregard of hallucinations - not delusional behaviour - but hallucinations and LBD. We do use the calm, remove from area and connect on an emotional level technique with our loved one. I can assure Dr Power that his hallucinations are exactly that and not misinformation or stimulation from external sources that are not misinterpreted by us. Dr Power has excellent credentials however he is not in a 24 x7 carer. I was also dismayed by his casual rendering of the story of Willy. Yes there was a cockroach and this was the trigger, but at the time what Willy saw on the wall was also real to him at that time a true hallucination not a delusion. I was also dismayed when Dr Power used the words Haldol and Parkinson in the same breath. I am assuming that Will also had LBD . Parkinson/LBD ...
To sum up, after a century-long hiatus, a limited trend toward the reformulation of naturalistic approaches to Jesus resurrection has recently emerged. The hallucination and related subjective hypotheses are again the most popular among these approaches, as they were at the close of the nineteenth century. We have seen that these strategies have failed to explain the known, critically ascertained data on several fronts. Giving a total of 19 reasons, we have concluded that they fall far short in their attempt to provide an alternative to the New Testament proclamation. Clinical psychologist Gary Collins summarizes a few of the issues: "Hallucinations are individual occurrences. By their very nature only one person can see a given hallucination at a time. They certainly are not something which can be seen by a group of people….Since an hallucination exists only in this subjective, personal sense, it is obvious that others cannot witness it."36. In fact, the problems with this thesis are so ...
A brief historical analysis of the general concept of hallucination is presented and the suggestion is made that it emerged as the unwarranted generalisation of a perceptual model that was meant to apply only to vision and the "distance senses". Against this background the evolution of tactile hallucinations is considered and its interaction with 19th century psychological theory explored. It is concluded that tactile hallucinations are sui generis phenomena which do not fit the conventional model and whose clinical identification rests on criteria so far unclear. A brief review of their taxonomy and diagnostic usefulness is presented. Some wider implications are drawn which should be relevant to the general concept of hallucination.. ...
... is the most common type of hallucination in dementia. Visual hallucinations can start with misinterpretations.
Therefore the endogenous hallucination hypothesis with any empirical evidence does not well correlate with the majority of inner speech observations. Besides the issue of primary auditory cortex activation, subcortical hearing pathway activation while hearing voices is particularly inconsistent with the inner speech model. Though the inner speech model of hallucination is entirely logical, and endogenous hallucination does apparently exist, the discrepancies point out the fact that in terms of a known pathway this model is entirely theoretical, especially as compared to the defined auditory pathway that is the mechanism of microwave hearing. Many patients attempt effective complaint of remote voice transmission, but are neutralized with their civil rights abrogated by shunting into the medical community who deem stigmatizing diagnoses based on uninformed dogma. There are considerable rationale to suspect schizophrenia diagnoses, particularly of the paranoid type as presumptive. ...

I had an auditory hallucination a few days ago while waking up from a nap (no, there were no drugs involved, just sleep). My head felt like it was buzzing like it sometimes does while waking up from a very deep sleep only this time the buzzing grew and grew until suddenly I heard something like a small choir (mostly male voices) singing "Aaaaah" briefly, then something like a pop and the sound and the buzzing were gone. It was pretty neat. Im chalking it up to "brains are weird that way".. Some time when I was much younger I once had a visual hallucination - also sleep-related, this time lack-thereof. I was driving home after a party (again no, no drugs involved) fighting the urge to fall asleep at the wheel when I saw one of those old-style bicycles with the huge front wheel dart out in front of me and disappear. Shortly after I saw a couple of flashing road barriers which also disappeared. Im confident that none of these were real but youll just have to take my word for it.. I have also ...
1.- Auditory: Stimuli of the transverse gyrus of Heschl of the temporal lobe, may elicit auditory events. Sacks (18) quotes on Dimitri Shostakovich, the Soviet composer, who reportedly had a metallic shell fragment in the temporal horn of his left ventricle. He said since the fragment has been there, each time [I lean] my head to one side, I can hear music - different each time! Apparently he would use this method while composing, producing melodic models for his symphonies. 2.- Vertiginous: Menieres disease is the cause of severe kinesthetic hallucinations , accompanied by nausea, dizziness, and malaise.

This study is meant to encourage further contributions in support of, or in contradiction to, its findings; namely, that some conversions originate in hallucinations.. I should acknowledge at once that this central hypothesis is hard to accept. It asks the reader to believe not only that nonpsychotic people in normal waking states can produce positive hallucinations, but also that conversions harbor live hallucinations. Such assumptions challenge two long-accepted distinctions: the first, between neurosis and psychosis; and the second, between being actively psychotic and not being actively psychotic.. But if we remember that some people do have brief regressions to the point of hallucination, and yet recover quickly; and that we finally designate as psychotic only those who prolong such regressions, then the hypothesis proposed here may seem less alien.. Still, the hypothesis implies some common ground between neurosis and psychosis. If the hypothesis is to be serviceable, that ...

This paper explores the experiences of women who hear voices (auditory verbal hallucinations). We begin by examining historical understandings of women hearing voices, showing these have been driven by androcentric theories of how womens bodies functioned, leading to women being viewed as requiring their voices be interpreted by men. We show the twentieth-century was associated with recognition that the mental violation of womens minds (represented by some voice-hearing) was often a consequence of the physical violation of womens bodies. We next report the results of a qualitative study into voice-hearing womens experiences (N=8). This found similarities between womens relationships with their voices and their relationships with others and the wider social context. Finally, we present results from a quantitative study comparing voice-hearing in women (n=65) and men (n=132) in a psychiatric setting. Women were more likely than men to have certain forms of voice-hearing (voices conversing) and to
Hi. Its Jenny at AnxietyBoss.com. Our question today is from Molly in Seattle, Washington. Can Klonopin cause hallucinations?. If you experience hallucinations while taking Klonopin, this is a serious side effect and you should talk to your doctor immediately. Klonopin falls under the category of benzodiazepines which are extremely addictive.. Hallucinations may be the result of an overdose. Other symptoms of a Klonopin overdose may be, but are not limited to, panic attacks, loss of memory, seizures, fevers, numbness, depression, tingling, alteration in personality, insomnia, excessive sweating, and dizziness.. If you feel your body may be becoming dependent on the medication, symptoms of addiction may be extreme cravings, social withdrawals, and excessive anxiety. Other side effects may be, but not are not limited to, rashes, pale skin, easy bruising, hives, blurry vision, joint pain, and drowsiness ...

The combination of a worldwide shift to GM crops and rising global temperatures led to a series of global disasters, destroying many natural resources and causing a permanent environmental imbalance. Earths leaders make the choice to outsource all food production to off-world corporately owned farm planets, known as flatlands. These giant artificial orbs contain vast crop fields and are operated robotically. A handful of human farmers are required to oversee operations and perform maintenance tasks. Although the environmental conditions are engineered to mimic 21st century Earth, there is no wildlife. Farmers have been reporting strange experiences of auditory hallucinations, nicknamed flatland frequencies, these are most likely a byproduct of the chemically engineered atmosphere combined with extreme isolation. ...

Table 4] presents comparison between pretest and post-test self-management strategies in the studied sample. It was found that there were statistically significant differences between preprogram and postprogram cognitive, behavioral, and physiological strategies in the studied sample (P=0.001). The studied sample showed improvement and used some coping mechanism for stopping hallucination effectively. The studied sample used behavioral techniques for coping and stopping hallucination in relation to physiological techniques: before program 76.7% did not use sleep but after program it helped 50% to some extent; and before program 86.7% did not use the technique of listening to music to cope but after program 60% of them listened to music, which helped them to cope to some extent. As regards cognitive techniques, 86.7% did not use the technique of talking with voices after intervention. 100% of patients did not shout to the voice but after intervention 50% of them shouted to the voice.

Dear Editor. We read with interest the paper by Tan et al. [1] on Charles Bonnet Syndrome (CBS) in Asian patients. Their finding of a lower CBS prevalence than European or North American surveys demands further investigation, although this may reflect the stringent criteria of hallucination complexity they used in making the diagnosis (thus excluding the commonest CBS hallucinations of coloured blobs and grid-like tesselloptic patterns [2,3]) and, as pointed out in the accompanying editorial comment, the relatively low prevalence of macular disease in their cohort. However, it is not this aspect of the report we found most intriguing - it was the observation that CBS occurred with good acuity. In fact, 3 of the 4 CBS patients described had a degree of impairment which placed them at risk for CBS (best eye acuity 0.3 or worse [4]). It is the remaining patient (patient three, a 72 year old male) who is of particular importance as his relative preservation of acuity bilaterally (20/30 RE, 20/40 ...
Intuitive impressions cover any extrasensory experience that includes a general unreasoned impression or hunch. With intuitive experiences, there are no pictures, images, sounds, smells, and so forth, nor any clearly known thought process leading to the impression. The experiencer just suddenly "knows" something, usually describing an unclear impression, that when examined later on was found to be supported at least a little bit. Intuitive impressions where an experiencer "feels" the emotions of another person, is today commonly referred to as psychic Empathy.. Hallucinations in relation to extrasensory experiences refers to seeing something that others cannot see or that is not physically present. Suggesting that an extrasensory experience is a hallucination does not mean that what the person is seeing is not real, just that its not necessarily physically there..

The research team consisted of two field workers who had extensive prior experience in interviewing individuals with hallucinations, using a similar format as the one in the present study. They also had prior experience in administrating the other instruments used. Nearly all children were interviewed at home. The baseline interview was conducted in the presence of at least one parent or grandparent (with a few exceptions where adolescents had specifically asked that the parent not be present). All subjects and their parents, where appropriate, provided written informed consent, conforming to the local ethics committee guidelines. At each interview the same instruments were used. The main instrument was the Maastricht Voices Interview for Children. The interview consisted of the Maastricht Voices Interview for adults that we adapted for children with the help of a clinical child psychologist. It contains several items in relation to the experience of hearing voices which were included on the ...

The phenomenological diversity of auditory verbal hallucinations (AVH) is not currently accounted for by any model based around a single mechanism. This has led to the proposal that there may be distinct AVH subtypes, which each possess unique (as well as shared) underpinning mechanisms. This could have important implications both for research design and clinical interventions because different subtypes may be responsive to different types of treatment. This article explores how AVH subtypes may be identified at the levels of phenomenology, cognition, neurology, etiology, treatment response, diagnosis, and voice hearers own interpretations. Five subtypes are proposed; hypervigilance, autobiographical memory (subdivided into dissociative and nondissociative), inner speech (subdivided into obsessional, own thought, and novel), epileptic and deafferentation. We suggest other facets of AVH, including negative content and form (eg, commands), may be best treated as dimensional constructs that vary ...
Understanding what happens at first onset of auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs) is extremely important on a clinical and theoretical level. Previous studies have only focused on age with regard to first onset of AVHs. In the current epidemiological study, we examined a number of aspects relating to first onset of AVHs, such as the role of adverse life events at first onset of AVHs on symptom severity and general mental health. For this purpose, we compared participants who reported adverse life events at first onset of AHVs (adverse-trigger group; N = 76) to those that did not report any specific events at first onset of AVHs (no-adverse-trigger group; N = 59) on a large array of variables ...
People with schizophrenia can be trained by playing a video game to control the part of the brain linked to verbal hallucinations, researchers say.Patients in a small study were able to land a rocket in the game when it was connected to the brain region sensitive to speech and human voices.In time, the patients learnt to use the technique in their daily lives to reduce the power of hallucinations.But this is a small pilot study and the findings still need to be confirmed.The research team, from Kings College Londons Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience and the University of Roehampton, says the technique could be used to help schizophrenia patients who do not respond to medication.People with the condition are known to have a more active auditory cortex, which means they are more sensitive to sounds and voices.All 12 patients in the study experienced nasty and threatening verbal hallucinations every day - a common symptom of schizophrenia.To try to control their … [Read ...

Sam talked about the difficulties in defining verbal hallucinations, as some have an auditory quality to them, but others appear to be more like thoughts. The wide variety of verbal hallucinations makes it harder to arrive at a unifying theory of what causes them. Drawing from his work with the Hearing the Voice project, Sam illustrated with examples and case studies how hallucinations can play a significant role in either hindering or supporting the wellbeing of voice hearers ...

Hallucinations range from the shimmering zigzags of a visual migraine to powerful visions brought on by fever, injuries, drugs, sensory deprivation, exhaustion, or even grief. Drawing on his own experiences, a wealth of clinical cases from among his patients, and famous historical examples ranging from Dostoevsky to Lewis Carroll, legendary neurologist Oliver Sacks investigates the mystery of these sensory deceptions: what they say about the working of our brains, how they have influenced our folklore and culture, and why the potential for hallucination is present in us all.
Duration permanent (D). DESCRIPTION. This spell functions as audiovisual hallucination, except that the phantasm you create includes visual, auditory, olfactory, tactile, and thermal components, and the phantasm follows a complex script. The phantasm follows that script without your having to concentrate on it and can react to stimuli the target perceives, as appropriate for the script. Unlike most illusions with a save to disbelieve, if the target disbelieves a permanent hallucination, she can choose to end the effect entirely at any time.. ...

C.D. is a 70 year-old Caucasian female with a diagnosis of schizophrenia since the age of seventeen. Her diagnosis was based on paranoia, disorganized speech, and hallucinations. She reported both auditory and visual hallucinations, including seeing skeletons and hearing voices that told her to hurt herself. According to her history, she has had these hallucinations on almost a daily basis since the age of seven. C.D. has also been hospitalized at least five times over the last six years for suicide attempts and increased psychotic symptoms. She has attempted to overdose on medications, cut herself, and ingest cleaning agents. Her most recenthospitalization was five months prior to initiating the low-carbohydrate diet. She has discussed both her suicidal ideations and her hallucinations with her psychiatrist who has tried to optimize her medication regimen in an effort to improve her symptoms, but this has been largely unsuccessful. Her prior anti-psychotic and mood-stabilizing medication ...
One lens through which experts are studying schizophrenia is anthropology. If the default mode network is related to identity and self-reflection-and if schizophrenia, in turn, is associated with the default mode network-then considering culture may help us understand how psychosis manifests itself globally. After all, how you experience your inner world depends partly on where you live and how youve grown up. The same is true of mental illness. "When immigrant groups move to a new cultural group, they take on the mental illness liabilities of the culture where they are," Immordino-Yang says. Because 60 to 80% of people diagnosed with schizophrenia hear voices, a good indicator of how a given culture views the disease might be how its people cope with its most well known but most misunderstood facets: auditory verbal hallucinations. ...
