Cognitive and phenomenological characteristics of hallucination-proneness across the lifespan

Thompson, Rhiannon and Hallas, Laura and Moseley, Peter and Alderson-Day, Ben (2021) 'Cognitive and phenomenological characteristics of hallucination-proneness across the lifespan.', Cognitive neuropsychiatry., 26 (1). pp. 18-34.
