intruder
   Also referred to as intruder experience. The term intruder comes from the Latin verb intrudere, which means to penetrate into. It was proposed by the Canadian psychologist and sleep researcher James Allan Cheyne to denote a major cluster of "hallucinoid experiences emerging from factor-analytic studies of the "nightmare. According to Cheyne, the cluster he calls intruder is characterized by a numinous sense of presence, followed or accompanied by symptoms such as "visual hallucinations, "auditory hallucinations, "tactile hallucinations, and feelings of anxiety. He uses the term intruder in opposition to the terms "incubus and " illusory movement experiences.
