MONDAY, MAY 12, 1952 'Spirit Voices' Heard by Insane May Be Kind of 'Human Sonar' B V V It A V K f \ K i.* v BLYTHRVILLB (AUK.) COURIER NEWS By FRANK CAREY AV Science JJrportcr ATLANTIC CITY, N..J. l.fl _ A kind of "human sonar"—comparable to the sound-cchoinrj technique used by the Navy to detect submarines—may be working in the brains of .many insane people. Dr. Walter Freeman, Washington D.C., brain specialist, said so today in declaring that a new idea in brain surgery offers promise of stilling t.'ie "spirit voices" heard by such people- and perhaps improving their general mental condition He said tho surgical technique— Involving Ihe removal of a fin~er- tip-sized organ from deep within the brain on both sides of the head —is baser! on n concept that that "voices" heard by the insane are actually echoes of words whispered by the patient himself often with closed lips. ' The report was in an address prepared for the Society of Bioligi- cal Psychiatry meeting in conjunction with the American Psychiatric Association. Bats and I'orpolses Dr. Freeman said the concept was based lo some decree on the following observation on bats and porpoises: Those crcalures—which apparently navigate around u' with th? help of sound echoes of their own making—have an abnormally large development of an organ within the brain called the "amygdaloid nuceieus." ^ Humans, as well as all animals, have similar organs inside the part of the brain that lies behind, each temple. Its natural function is| believed to be associated with the pitch of the human voice and the' call or cry of lower animals. j Defect In Umins | Dr. Freeman offered the Iheory i that In insane people who hear] "voices" I here is some defect in ' these inner brain organs. It appears he explained, that ideas o( the patient himself are converted—with the help of the defective organs into "whispered words" which are fhen heard by the patient "asljarv Unit"her» -,» ti, , voices coming from outside of i Son day nlShl n A ,v B '° n H<lt himself " i Monna - 1 night.

Dr. Freeman offered the view that In some patients -the vocal muscles actually move to translate ideas into "whispered" words, even though there is no apparent movement of the lips. He demonstrated at the meeting • record of audible whispered words, even though there is no apparent movement of the lips.
