Disorder of perception
Illusions are misperceptions of external stimuli.
Hallucinations: percepts are experienced in the absence of an external stimulus to the corresponding sense organ.
Pseudohallucinations: percepts are experienced within the mind, internal space, or as unreal percepts within external space.
Different types of hallucination are associated with complexity, such as elementary and complex hallucinations; with sensory modality, such as auditory, visual, olfactory and gustatory hallucinations; somatic hallucinations; with special features, such as auditory Gedankenlautwerden or visual extracampine.
Hallucinations may take place in severe affective disorders, schizophrenia, organic disorders, and dissociative states, and at times among healthy people.
