Factors associated with delay to video-EEG in dissociative seizures

Dissociative seizures (DS), also known as functional or psychogenic nonepileptic seizures, can be disabling for patients [1–3]. Patients with undiagnosed DS often receive inappropriate treatment for their seizures. This could be because, most frequently, DS are signs and symptoms of a functional neurological disorder (FND) where patients may have alteration in the function but not necessarily structure of the brain where psychological stress may be expressed through physical neurological symptoms [4,5].
