Results obtained from administration of the MMPI before and after insulin shock treatment with 37 hospitalized schizophrenic patients are presented. Significantly lower means in the post-treatment scores were found for the F, Pd, Pa, Pt, and Sc scales. Improvement was accompanied by post-treatment increase in the L, K, and corrected Hs scales, and decrease in Ma. The results “are rather difficult to interpret because of our limited knowledge of the meaning and behavioral correlates of MMPI performance.” (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
