Anderson Cooper set out to see how it feels to live with schizophrenia in an experiment by placing headphones in his ears and listening to previously recorded voices. Cooper attempts to complete a few tests and walks around New York City while listening to the voices and claims that he is unable to complete the tasks. He found the voices very imposing and wanted to take the headphones off. This experiment brings to light the difficulties that people with schizophrenia face each day.
