> I've had very intense auditory hallucinations (almost always music) several times when I've gone for a long period without sleep. I'm not sure if "hallucination" is technically correct, since I'm fully aware it's not real -- yet I can hear the music (various kinds, from a popular song to a symphony orchestra) loud and clear, in great detail.

Perhaps lack of sleep interferes with key neurotransmitters in certain parts of the brain in the same ways that some meds can have this effect on certain people?

Hi, that is interesting that you mention sleep deprivation. I particularly notice the music stuff when I am hypomanic. I tend to sleep much less when I am hypo. Sleep deprivation also lowers the seizure threshold considerably. Also, when the music stuff is happening I also tend to experience deja vu episodes with heightened superstitiousness and a sense of magic being all around. The music tends to be stuff that I have been listening to recently. The more hypo I get the less contiguous the timing of the snippet of music is (a sampled portion is shorter in duration and repeats more often). More anticonvulsant = less music. More antidepressant = more music.
