Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A patient had episodes of bilateral paresthesias with retained consciousness. The attacks were clinically considered to be psychogenic seizures. Electroencephalography indicated that the attacks were epileptic, perhaps originating from the second sensory area. Elec- troencephalographic recording of a seizure is essential in differentiating epileptic from psychogenic episodes.
