Effects of auditory hallucinations on the mismatch negativity (MMN) in schizophrenia as measured by a modified ‘optimal’ multi-feature paradigm

Conclusions
This is the first study to examine MMN in SZ and to report a significant difference in duration MMN amplitude between patients and healthy within the modified (Optimal-3) multi-feature MMN paradigm. This study corroborates previous research reporting a robust duration MMN deficit in schizophrenia and supports previous findings suggesting that AHs may contribute to MMN deficits in schizophrenia.
