post-hypnotic hallucination
   The term post-hypnotic hallucination is indebted to the Latin prefix post (after) and the notion of hypnosis, which is in turn indebted to the Greek noun hupnos (sleep). The term post-hypnotic hallucination is used in the literature on hypnotism to denote a hallucinatory phenomenon that can be evoked through suggestion in another person, starting - or lingering on - after the cessation of the hypnotic state. Post-hypnotic hallucinations can be either positive in nature (in which case an object or stimulus is perceived which lacks a source in the extracorporeal environment) or negative (in which case one fails to perceive an object or stimulus which is actually present in the extracorporeal environment).
