Recently, enough data accumulated and created a promising method of diagnosis: anatomic pathology. A greater number of diverse studies have been implicating structural changes within the brains of chronic and first episode schizophrenics.As far back as 1992, Lieberman and colleagues concluded that there were higher overall rates of abnormal brain morphology in schizophrenics.
Those voices may harm the person who hallucinate it by controlling their mind to do something like the commands “kill yourself” and they will just follow the command and commit suicide.
