Does Booth have Peduncular halucinations?
Peduncular halucinations occur in patients with mid-brain damage and consist of unformed bright colors and animated cartoon like figures in a stereotypical fashion.

Though the peduncular hallucinations are described in association with intrinsic lesions of midbrain, the extrinsic compression of brain stem is also known to cause this phenomenon. Dunn et al reported the association of transient peduncular hallucinations due to compression of midbrain by cystic craniopharyngioma, which resolved following the drainage of cyst.
