Visual hallucinations in blindness
Bonnet syndrome is commonly considered to refer to visual hallucinations in visually impaired individuals with full alertness, unimpaired cognition, and no psychosis. These hallucinations can include simple or complex hallucinations, including geometric shapes, animals, human figures, buildings, or landscape scenes. Bonnet hallucinations are thought to result from a "release" mechanism associated with modality-specific sensory deprivation.
