Auditory hallucinations: a comparison between patients and nonpatients.
The form and the content of chronic auditory hallucinations were compared in three cohorts, namely patients with schizophrenia, patients with a dissociative disorder, and nonpatient voice-hearers to present evidence that the form of the hallucinations experienced by both patient and non patient groups is similar, irrespective of diagnosis.
Depression in Europe. Geographical distribution among older people.
Considerable variation occurs in the levels of depression across Europe, the cause for which is not immediately obvious, and case and sub-case levels taken together show greater variability, suggesting that it is not a matter of case/sub-case selection criteria, which were standardised by computer.
