PRITE Oriented Topics

Trailing: The perceptual abnormality associated with hallucinogenic drugs in which moving objects are seen as a series of discrete and discontinuous images.

Synesthesias: Neurologically based condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.
Example: In one common form of synesthesia, known as grapheme --> color synesthesia or color-graphemic synesthesia, letters or numbers are perceived as inherently colored, while in ordinal linguistic personification, numbers, days of the week and months of the year evoke personalities.
In spatial-sequence, or number form synesthesia, numbers, months of the year, and/or days of the week elicit precise locations in space (for example, 1980 may be "farther away" than 1990), or may have a (three-dimensional) view of a year as a map (clockwise or counterclockwise).
Yet another recently identified type, visual motion --> sound synesthesia, involves hearing sounds in response to visual motion and flicker.
Over 60 types of synesthesia have been reported.

Image shows how someone with synesthesia might perceive certain letters and numbers.

Derealization: An alteration in the perception or experience of the external world so that it seems strange or unreal.
* Derealization is a subjective experience of unreality of the outside world, while Depersonalization is unreality in one's sense of self.
