This study shows how hearing voices doesn't indicate mental illness
A new study says that people who hear internal voices doesn’t mean they suffer from possible mental health problems.
It suggests individuals who have this form of different hearing have an improved ability in finding meaningful speech patterns and unclear sounds.
It means people who hear voices are not suffering from any problem or mental illness.
The research was done on 17 people who didn’t have voice-hearing abilities and 12 who did have.
The participants were told to listen to swine-wave speech sounds during an MRI brain scan.
It found that 75% of voice-hearers heard hidden speech sounds, but only 47% of non-voice-hearers confirmed these noises.
