AUDITORY HALLUCINATION

the perception of sound in the absence of any kind of auditory stimulus. Hallucinations may, for example, be accusatory or laudatory voices, strange noises, or represent disconnected words or commands. Auditory hallucinations occur frequently in schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders - but they may be associated with other conditions, for example, dementia.

AUDITORY HALLUCINATION: "The person with schizophrenia heard an auditory hallucination that informed him or her that direct contact with God was viable."
