Pattern recognition suppression
Pattern recognition suppression can be described as a partial to complete inability to mentally process visual information regardless of its clarity. For example, although one may be able to see what is in front of them in perfect detail, they will have a reduced ability to understand what they are looking at. This can render even the most common of everyday objects as unrecognizable.
Pattern recognition suppression is often accompanied by other coinciding effects such as analysis suppression and thought deceleration. It is most commonly induced under the influence of heavy dosages of dissociative or antipsychotic compounds, such as ketamine, quetiapine, PCP, and DXM. However, it can also occur to a lesser extent under the influence of extremely heavy dosages of psychedelic compounds such as LSD, psilocybin, and mescaline.
