Müller, Johannes Peter
(1801-1858)
   A German physiologist and zoologist who is probably best known in psychiatry for his work On the Fantastic Phenomena of Lision,inwhich he laid down important new principles for the description, understanding, and explanation of hallucinations. As noted by the British historian of psychiatry German E. Berrios, Müller experienced * visual hallucinations from childhood onwards. Reportedly, these consisted ofhuman or humanoid figures moving against the white wall opposite his parents' house. Shortly after he got married, Müller suffered a 'nervous breakdown', about which little else is known, and later a second one.
