Abstract

Reinterpretation of old data (J. Nerv. Ment. Dis., 164: 247–252, 1977), which showed greater right ear superiority effects for schizophrenic patients than for normal controls in dichotic listening, lends support to the assumption of left hemisphere overactivation among schizophrenics. This overactivation seems to be more pronounced among paranoid than among nonparanoid schizophrenics.
