Abstract

A multi-disciplinary approach is paramount in schizophrenia research because the disorder itself and its symptoms are heterogenous. As verbal auditory hallucination is the commonest yet poorly understood symptom in patients with schizophrenia, studies have focussed on the symptom in order to understand schizophrenia better. This paper highlights on significant audiological findings in auditory hallucination research. Interestingly, the vast amount of empirical data on auditory pathways in schizophrenia patients have moved our traditional beliefs on the symptom towards more scientific reasoning. Unfortunately, the contribution from audiologists who are specialized in managing auditory disorders is very limited in this research field. It is a hope that their involvement in the multi-discplinary team will strengthen and more importantly help in exploring new research ideas in this challenging research field.
