Gould decided to look for the answer in one of his patients, whom we will call Lisa, a 46-year-old woman with paranoid schizophrenia. He thought to himself: If subvocal speech is a slight activation of the vocal muscles, leading to the production of extremely quiet sound, what if we were to make it louder? It should be possible, in theory, to amplify the unheard sound using a microphone. Gould pressed a small microphone to the skin of Lisa’s throat, and to his astonishment, the subvocal, previously inaudible voice emerged as a soft whisper
Gould was taken aback. Whenever Lisa reported hearing the voice in her head, he heard whispers emanating from the microphone. What’s more, when asked about what the voice told her, Lisa’s description matched the content of the amplified speech word for word. The voice in Lisa’s head spoke at the same time, and said the same things, as the subvocal speech she herself generated.
Years later, a research group had a similar interaction with a 51-year-old male patient, whom we will call Roy, who often described his communication with an entity in his mind named Miss Jones. Just like in Gould’s experiment, researchers placed a microphone against Roy’s throat and recorded the following exchange:

That’s a good question, what do I seek from this forum. I’m gonna have to say, hope. My 2 year ordeal has settled into an experience, I feel I can now survive. I don’t want to commit suicide anymore. And, I think you are right, maybe part of me doesn’t want to let him go. The moments of beauty are still outweighed by this dominant program. I’ve actually split the two in my mind. It’s like I’m in a prison, with oppressive rules and corporal punishment, but my prison guard is kind, and he adores me. There is a very intimate relationship forming, that seems to dedicate more time to me lately. I wasn’t a lonely woman before. I’m quite attractive, and I had my needs met when I wanted. I guess I’m trying to say, I’m not desperate for any attention I can get. But seeking knowledge and understanding of this experience, still drives me to find an answer. reply to: MarsneedsGuitars
