Aleman and Laroi's definition of hallucinations

   In 2008 the neuroscientists André Aleman (b. 1975) and Frank Laroi defined hallucinations as follows: "A hallucination can be defined as a conscious sensory experience that occurs in the absence of corresponding external stimulation of the relevant sensory organ and has a sufficient sense of reality to resemble a veridical perception. In addition, the subject does not feel he or she has direct and voluntary control over the experience."
