“What Schizophrenia Sounds Like”
For the last couple of weeks I have been looking up information about the mental illness, schizophrenia for a research project for my psychology class. During my research I found an interesting project that some scientists had put together called, “What Schizophrenia Sounds Like.” After interviewing many people with this illness the scientists compiled a short clip of what a schizophrenic might hear during an episode, or just day to day. I listened to this from my laptop speakers, not the recommended head phone approach (Which I’m glad that I did!) When I pressed play on this sound clip I instantly got chills and had to turn down the volume before proceeding. Honestly, it creeped me out to the point where I had to turn something funny on the TV to keep from weirding myself out. This sound clip really is interesting. Have a listen!
SCHIZOPHRENIA: This is what a tiny bit of it sounds like, just multipy it by 10. Its not as quiet. More voices, more laughing. Almost 24/7. So don’t EVER joke about schizophrenia.
An audio presentation put together designed to provide the listener with some understanding of what it might be like to experience auditory hallucinations. This information is based off of what real Schizophrenic patients experiences.
This is essentially a look into insanity.
Please listen with headphones on and turn them up for the full effect.
