Clinical study of the function of epileptic and pseudo-epileptic crises in residential patients of specialised neurological institutions

Units : Department of Clinical and Differential Psychology | ULB101

Description :

This research is aimed at the clinical and comparative evaluation of the function of pharmaco-resistant epileptiform crises in
three groups of subjects: (1) patients presenting a validated diagnosis of epilepsy, (2) patients presenting pseudo-epileptic
manifestations of psychogenic origin, and (3) patients presenting mixed symptoms (1+2).  The working hypothesis addresses the status and
function of the crises within the psychic and interpersonal economy of the subjects. The psychological mechanisms implied amongst
the three groups are supposedly comparable and analogous to psychosomatic disorders.
