Schizophrenia is a severe psychiatric disorder that affects approximately 1% of the
population worldwide. Although pathophysiology of this disease remains unclear, a growing
interest is emerging for low-level sensory function, acknowledging that deficits in early
stages of sensory processing are related to higher-order cognitive disturbances in
schizophrenia. In the field of auditory processing, symptoms as auditory-hallucinations were
found correlated with disabilities to discriminate psychoacoustic parameters of sounds.
