Hallucinations in people with dementia - Alzheimer's Society

An Alzheimer's Society advice sheet on hallucinations and delusions.
Richard Bryer's insight:

Dementia causes hallucinations for all 5 senses. Even though seeing things is what is thought to happen most often. Not everyone with dementia has these effects though.

 

How often hallucinations occur depends on the mental stability.  They can be short lasting or long lasting.  If they are long lasting then the person will need more detailed treatment.  Even mentally fit people hallucinate at a given point in their life.  However, these people can distinguish what is real and what is not.

"Drug hallucinations look real in the brain"

"Drug hallucinations look real in the brain" | Are hallucinations real or not? Aspect 2 | Scoop.it

[Researchers] asked the volunteers to look at images of people or animals while their brains were scanned using functional MRI, then asked the volunteers to close their eyes and imagine they were still viewing the image. Unsurprisingly, the researchers found that neural activity in the primary visual cortex dropped off when volunteers imagined seeing the image rather than actually viewing it.
