- postictal religious experience
- The term postictal religious experience is indebted to the Latin words post (after) and ictus (thrust, blow). It is used to denote a religious experience taking place during the aftermath of an epileptic seizure. This experience may take the form of a * religious hallucination or illusion, but this is not necessarily the case. The term postictal religious experience is used in opposition to the terms * ictal religious experience and * interictal religious experience.ReferencesDevinsky, O., Lai, G. (2008).
