Ueber die phantastischen Gesichtserscheinungen. Eine physiologische Untersuchung mit einer physiologischen Urkunde des Aristoteles über den Traum.
FIRST EDITION. This book contains further studies on specific nerve energies, following on from his Zur vergleichenden Physiologie des Gesichtssinnes des Menschen und der Thiere published earlier in the same year. In it Müller showed that the sensory system of the eye not only reacts to external optical stimuli but also can be excited by interior stimuli arising from organic malfunction, lingering mental images, or the play of the imagination. When the stimulus is mistakenly assumed to have originated outside the body, the result -- depending on the situation -- is the reporting of religious or magical visions, or the seeing of ghosts. The observations on hallucinations, clairvoyance, and dreams, which form the second and third parts of this work, are of importance for the history of psychiatry.G&M 1456.
