I there a name for the class of psychological sensations that include déjà vu?

I do not believe that 'déjà vu' would be properly categorized as a 'hallucination', or a 'delusion'. It must belong to some class of 'strange sensations/feelings'. Can anyone find a technical name for such a class in the psychological literature?

Update:

I do not believe that 'déjà vu' would be properly categorized as a 'hallucination', or a 'delusion'. It must belong to some class of 'strange sensations/feelings'. Note: I am not looking for a class of memory-related senations called 'paramnesias', but something more general -- a technical name for having strange feelings/sensations that are not hallucinations.
