From mind-pops to hallucinations? A study of involuntary semantic memories in schizophrenia
Psychiatry Research, 06/12/2012
Elua I et al. – Results showed that schizophrenia patients reported experiencing mind–pops more frequently than both depressed and non–clinical controls. Schizophrenia patients also reported a wider range of different types of mind–pops than non–clinical controls. The depressed group did not differ from non–clinical controls in the frequency and range of mind–pops, indicating that mind–pops are not characteristic of clinical populations in general, but may be particularly prevalent in patients with schizophrenia.
