In 1973 Rosenhan and his pals conducted a number of psychological experiments to determine the validity of diagnosis of mental patients. They sent participants to various mental hospitals who all complained of the same symptoms, (hearing voices). None of them were actually insane but all were diagnosed with schizophrenia. All were admitted and made to take anti-psychotic drugs. They then behaved normally and said they no longer had symptoms. There were released but were charged with continuing to take medication and were diagnosed with their condition in remission. The study showed that there appeared to be no way for the doctors to tell the genuinely insane from the sane when diagnosing their condition. Concerned the mental institutions asked form more people to be sent so they could improve their diagnosis process and detect the impostors. Following the request they identified lots of people they suspected of being impostors and reported back to Rosenhan their findings. In response Rosenhan told them he had sent no one!
