   The 1982 Manual for the Assessment and Documentation of Psychopathology (AMDP) defines hallucinations as follows: "Hallucinations are perceptual experiences without a corresponding stimulus in the environment. One can hallucinate in all sense modalities and frequently in more than one. The judgment of reality is more or less narrowed or suspended."
