This retrospective analysis synthesized the results of existing studies examining sensory processing preferences of people with psychiatric conditions, including schizophrenia, high risk for psychosis, bipolar disorder, depression, posttraumatic stress and obsessive–compulsive disorder. A general pattern of increased sensory sensitivity, sensation avoiding, and low registration and less sensation seeking was identified; however, condition-specific preferences were also noted.
