genuine hallucination
   Also referred to as true hallucination, veridical hallucination, and hallucination proper. The term genuine hallucination is indebted to the Latin adjective genuinus, which means innate. All four terms are used to denote a * sensory deception that fulfils all the formal criteria of a hallucination. They are used in opposition to the term * false hallucination, which can be used to designate phenomena such as * daydreams, * hypnagogic hallucinations, and * physiological illusions.
