Bilateral absolute auditory thresholds for frequencies ranging from 250 to 8000 Hz were examined on two occasions in schizophrenic patients and normal control subjects. Patients were classified as hallucinators and nonhallucinators on the basis of symptom ratings on both occasions. Previous evidence of better right than left ear acuity in schizophrenia was replicated but was found to characterize nonhallucinating patients only. Hallucinators showed no lateral asymmetry and inferior right ear… CONTINUE READING
