Hallucinations


What is Hallucinations? A hallucination is the sensation of a real perception in the absence of an actual external stimulus. They are often vivid and substantial. Unlike dreaming, hallucinations occur during the state of wakefulness. Hallucinations are different from illusions, wherein illusions are distorted perception of a real object. The term “Hallucination” was coined by Sir Thomas Browne in 1646, derived from the Latin word “alucinari”, that means to wander in the mind.
