-'''Depersonalization''' is an 'alteration' in the perception or experience of the self so that one feels 'detached' from, and as if one is an 'outside' observer of, one's mental processes or body. It can be considered desirable, such as in the use of [[recreational drugs]], but it usually refers to the severe form found in [[anxiety]] and, in the most intense case, [[panic attack]]s. A sufferer feels that he or she has changed and the [[world]] has become less real, vague, dreamlike, or lacking in significance. It can sometimes be a rather disturbing experience, since many feel that indeed, they are living in a "[[dream]]." +'''Sleep deprivation''' is a general lack of the necessary amount of [[sleep]]. This may occur as a result of [[sleep disorders]], active choice or deliberate inducement such as in [[interrogation]] or for [[torture]].

-Chronic depersonalization refers to [[depersonalization disorder]], which is classified by the [[DSM-IV]] as a [[Dissociation (psychology)|dissociative disorder]]. [[Derealization]] is a similar term to depersonalization, and the two are often used interchangeably. However, more specifically, derealization is the feeling that "[[illusion|nothing is real]]," while depersonalization is the feeling that one is "detached" from one's body or world. Though these feelings can happen to anyone, they are most prominent in [[anxiety disorder]]s, [[clinical depression]], [[bipolar disorder]], [[sleep deprivation]], and some types of [[epilepsy]]. +
