Kanner's definition of hallucinations

   In 1935 the Austrian-American child psychiatrist Leo Kanner (1894-1981) defined hallucinations as follows: "Hallucinations are sensory impressions without external stimulation. There is no outward source for the imagined voices, visions, odors, tastes, or tactile sensations."
