PEDUNCULAR HALLUCINOSIS

repetitive optical hallucinations stemming from pathological procedures in the upper brainstem, that indirectly impact the central visual system. The hallucinations, that might be extensive, dramatic, and scenic, are frequently joined by agitation and sleep disruptions. The hallucinations are generally known as such by the client, who might see a panorama of individuals and occurrences from their past life. Peduncular hallucinosis might be linked with non-hallucinatory perceptions.
