Questioning the status of aberrant speech patterns as psychiatric symptoms

  • Eric J. Tan (a1) and Susan L. Rossell (a1)

Summary

Speech disturbances manifest in various psychiatric conditions and demonstrate temporal variability in relation to acute and stable symptom periods. They can be externally assessed, which facilitates their potential use as an objective marker of illness stage. Continued research will have positive implications for diagnostics and long-term management in clinical settings.
