Hearing the Voice
Hearing the Voice is a large interdisciplinary study of voice-hearing led by researchers at Durham University and funded by the Wellcome Trust.
Usually associated with severe mental illness such as schizophrenia and psychosis, hearing voices can be an important aspect of many ordinary people’s lives. We seek to examine this phenomenon from as many different relevant perspectives as possible.
