(58) Individuals with AiWS also experience 'dysmetropsia,' an umbrella term given to a collection of symptoms including changes in the apparent size of objects (micropsia/macropsia) as well as a sense that objects are either very far away (teleopsia) or extremely close (pelopsia).
On the other hand a propagation from the basal region to the lateral occipital and parietal region (through the VO, vSLF, and AF) would create complex illusions like objects that appear disorientated in distance (macroproxiopia, microtelepsia), or be distant and minute (teleopsia), or that have a loss or enhancement of stereoscopic vision or even persistent or recurrent (palinopsia) (see [6-8] for reviews).

Santhouse y cols., utilizando resonancia nuclear magnetica funcional, han correlacionado diferentes tipos de alucinaciones con areas especificas de la corteza cerebral: los rostros estarian localizados en el surco temporal superior (area V6 de la corteza de asociacion visual donde se originarian las prometamorfopsias y dismegalopsias); los objetos y sus movimientos, en la corteza occipito-temporal ventral (area V5 de la corteza de asociacion visual donde se originarian las poliopias, dendropsias y teleopsias), y la fijacion visual, en el lobulo parietal, donde se originarian las palinopsias (5,8,20).
