AMDP's definition of illusions

   The 1982 Manual for the Assessment and Documentation of Psychopathology (AMDP) defines illusions as follows: "Distortion or misinterpretation of a real perception. Falsified actual perceptions; the presence of a real object (percept) differentiates an illusion from a hallucination."
