I asked this question How are hallucinations generated, is it related to dreaming?.

It occurs to me that auditory hallucinations may well be generated in a different part of the brain to visual hallucinations. From my understanding, some hallucinations involve both auditory and visual components.

Which parts of the brain are responsible for generating various hallucinations and how does this correlate to auditory vs visual hallucinations and a combined hallucination?

Good question. Although I'm not a neurologist, I'd love to see a collection of MRIs of each so I can visually see if there is a difference. –  IQAndreas Jul 31 at 19:08
