The data also indicated that the UK adult sample was very similar to an established US sample of adults… Expand

Dissociation, trauma, and the role of lived experience: toward a new conceptualization of voice hearing.

Auditory false perceptions are mediated by psychosis risk factors
TLDR
Younger participants seem most vulnerable to the effects of positive schizotypal traits in terms of a signal detection deficit that underlies auditory hallucinations, andSchizotypy may have greatest impact closer to the risk period for development of psychotic disorders. Expand
