Abstract

There has been a dramatic surge in research on auditory hallucinations over the past 15 years. Of the more than 100 papers identified in a recent meta-analysis of studies on definition, description and causes of auditory hallucinations (1), greater than 90% were published since the year 2000. This glut of publications points to an upheaval that has taken place in psychiatry. Simply put, there has been a paradigm shift: a movement away from the Schneiderian view of auditory hallucinations as (predominantly) symptoms of psychotic disorder, towards an increasingly accepted view that these are experiences that occur in the full range of mental disorders and, indeed, none.
