The effects of varying auditory input on schizophrenic hallucinations: a replication.

Author information

School of Psychology, Queen's University of Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK.


The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different types of auditory stimulation on reports of auditory hallucinations at the time of the experiment. The results showed that self-reports by seven schizophrenic patients of auditory hallucinations were reduced by different types of auditory stimulation, particularly by listening to pop music. Requiring the subject to read a passage aloud also reduced the levels reported. This study was a replication of one by Margo, Hemsley & Slade (1981) who reported similar findings.
