Brain changes: Visual illusions have been a topic for many decades. Oliver sacks has written a great deal about them, most recently in his book hallucination. Brain changes occur during migraine that cause the illusions. Lewis carroll had migraines that caused effects he described in his stories to alice. We now call them alice in wonderland effects in migraine. Exact cause is still uncertain.
