Visual hallucinations, attention, and neural circuitry: Perspectives from schizophrenia research

  • Kevin M. Spencer (a1) and Robert W. McCarley (a1)

We tested Collerton et al.'s model of visual hallucinations by re-examining a data set for correlations between visual hallucinations and measures of attentional function in schizophrenia patients. These data did not support their model. We suggest that cortical hyperexcitability plays an important role in hallucinations, and propose an alternative model that links evidence for cortical hyperexcitability with abnormal neural dynamics.
