Study on Auditory Hallucinations in Schizophrenia
The University of Minnesota Department of Psychiatry and the Minneapolis VA Health Care System are conducting a study examining how transcranial electrical stimulation (tES) affects auditory hallucinations.
TES is non-invasive and involves applying a weak electrical current to the scalp.
Participants will be asked to attend ten treatment sessions, twice per day for five days, and will be asked to participate in three follow up visits for up to six months after treatment.
Who can participate?
- Ages 18-64 years old
- Have a diagnosis of Schizophrenia or Schizoaffective disorder
- Experience medication-resistant auditory hallucinations
