Contributions of emotional prosody comprehension deficits to the formation of auditory verbal hallucinations in schizophrenia.

Alba-Ferrara, L. and Fernyhough, C. and Weis, S. and Mitchell, R. L. C. and Hausmann, M. (2012) 'Contributions of emotional prosody comprehension deficits to the formation of auditory verbal hallucinations in schizophrenia.', Clinical psychology review., 32 (4). pp. 244-250.

Abstract

Deficits in emotional processing have been widely described in schizophrenia. Associations of positive symptoms with poor emotional prosody comprehension (EPC) have been reported at the phenomenological, behavioral, and neural levels. This review focuses on the relation between emotional processing deficits and auditory verbal hallucinations (AVH). We explore the possibility that the relation between AVH and EPC in schizophrenia might be mediated by the disruption of a common mechanism intrinsic to auditory processing, and that, moreover, prosodic feature processing deficits play a pivotal role in the formation of AVH. The review concludes with proposing a mechanism by which AVH are constituted and showing how different aspects of our neuropsychological model can explain the constellation of subjective experiences which occur in relation to AVH.
