Clinical neuroimaging in epileptic patients with autoscopic hallucinations and out-of-body experiences

Autoscopic phenomena are complex illusory perceptions of one's body during which human subjects experience a second own body or double in their environment. Autoscopic phenomena most commonly refer tovisual doubles, although doubles may also be felt or heard and consist of autoscopic hallucinations, out-ofbody experiences, and heautoscopy. Recently, many neurological reports have focussed on out-of-body experiences. Here we review neurological data on autoscopic hallucinations and present a case during complex partial seizures due to neurocysticercosis
