Many children hear voices

A new study found that nearly 1 in 10 seven- to eight-year-olds hears voices that aren't really there. Most aren’t bothered, and most don’t grow up to be schizophrenic.

Read more about the study here.

This video simulates what it’s like to be a person with schizophrenia. It starts off innocently, and then gets worse.

When I was a kid and ate certain cereals that crackled as the milk settled over them, I could hear tiny voices within the sound. I knew they weren't real, and I tried not to think about them. Did you hear voices when you were a kid?
