I never had auditory hallucinations

"In 1962, Leo Hollister, a Veteran's Administration (VA) psychiatrist in California, delivered a devastating critique of [the Dopamine "experimentation",] this 'popular tool' in psychiatric research, arguing that LSD, mescaline, psilocybin, and other psychedelics didn't produce a model psychosis at all. Such agents primarily provoked visual hallucinations, whereas schizophrenic patients mostly grapples with auditory delusions. The drugs were simply making them suffer in new ways." -- 'Mad In America', by Robert Whitaker

I never had auditory hallucinations until after mid-April 1996.
