With the aid of neuroimaging, Iris Sommer (1970) demonstrated that the language areas of the right-hand side of the brain are particularly active at the time that schizophrenia patients hear voices.

She discovered indications that this activity is triggered from within the memory. On the basis of insights gained from Sommer's research, new treatments have been developed in the past two years for patients who hear voices and who respond insufficiently to antipsychotic medication.
