[en] Hallucinatory experiences in nonclinical subjects were examined using a French adaptation of a self-report questionnaire (Launay-Slade Hallucinations Scale; LSHS). The factor structure of this questionnaire was examined. In addition to prevalence, we explored various characteristics of the reported hallucinatory experiences, including frequency, degree of control, emotional reaction, relationship to stressful events, and personal saliency. We also examined the relationship between the presence of hallucinatory experiences and other factors, such as substance use and social desirability. Two hundred and thirty-six nonclinical participants completed a modified version of the LSHS, a social desirability scale, and answered follow up questions. Factor analysis of the present version of the LSHS revealed a five-factor structure. Results regarding participants' hallucination frequency, perceived levels of control, and affective responses are reported. Additional results and implications are discussed.
