Cognitive mechanisms associated with proneness to hallucination

Research suggests that hallucinations in people with psychosis may be associated with biased cognitive processes as well as atypical language processing. To further understand this relationship, this study aims to investigate the cognitive mechanisms associated with hallucination-proneness among healthy individuals. Findings from the study will inform a future research study comparing the cognitive mechanisms of healthy individuals to those with specific psychosis-related disorders.
