8)functional, an external stimulus is required to provoke hallucination................whereas a stimulus in one sensory modality producing an hallucination in another is called a reflex page 96/97 of sims, in functional perception of the stimulus and hallucination are experienced simultaneously

i think reflex=extracampine, but may be woefully off the mark

extracampine means outside of range of senses eg; i can hear him on the other side of town, or I can see him walking behind me. kind of delusional as well as hallucinatory.

reflex is like a synaesthetic experience

helpful or more confusing?
