Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizures Diagnosis and Treatment - SLUCare Neurology & Psychology
Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizures (PNES), also referred to as functional seizures, are seen in about a third of cases for those seen for medically refractory epilepsy. They have the appearance of a normal seizure except that they are not caused by abnormal brain electrical discharges. Instead these seizures are caused many times by psychological distress. SLUCare Neuropsychologist Dr. Evan Schulze talks about the use of cognitive behavioral informed psychotherapy for the treatment of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures.
