Aubanel's definition of hallucinations
- In 1839 the French physician Honoré Aubanel defined hallucinations as follows: "The hallucination is a form or variety of mental illness in which a person transforms delirious mental ideas into sensations, or, using these same ideas, perverts his real sensations by assimilating them with the ideas of his delirium."ReferencesAubanel, H.
