Frontiers in Schizohprenia, 4:155
Mouse over here for a brief summary or click to open article in a new tab.In this paper, we contrast two models of auditory verbal hallucination (AVH) in schizophrenia: a self-monitoring model and a spontaneous activation model. While postulating defects in the former is more common in explaining AVH, we argue that that it faces some significant challenges and that instead, the aberrant and spontaneous activation in relevant auditory regions should be the default model of why AVH occurs. We then outline experiments that can be done to tease the models apart.
