- pressure photism
- The term pressure photism is indebted to the Greek verb photizein, which means to give light, to illuminate. It used to denote a type of *synaesthesia characterized by a hallucinated colour sensation (i.e. a *photism) which is triggered by a sensation of pressure experienced on or inside the body.ReferencesCytowic, R.E.
