Importance Misdiagnosis of epilepsy is common. Video electroencephalogram provides a definitive diagnosis but is impractical for many patients referred for evaluation of epilepsy. Objective To evaluate the accuracy of outpatient smartphone videos in epilepsy. Design, Setting, and Participants This prospective, masked, diagnostic accuracy study (the OSmartViE study) took place between August 31, 2015, and August 31, 2018, at 8 academic epilepsy centers in the United States and included a convenie...
Is FND a mind or brain disorder? Both approaches are appropriate, because they examine the same entity from different angles, using different lenses and methods. To focus on one at the expense of t...

Abstract Objective Over 40% of combat Veterans report exposure to at least one type of morally injurious experience (MIE). While moral injury (MI) is described among Veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), MI has not been studied in Veterans with psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES). We sought to identify MI in a clinical sample of Veterans with PNES and describe differences between those with MI and those without. Methods We conducted a retrospective cross-sectional study of 82 ...

Abstract Since its establishment in 2000, Epilepsy & Behavior has published more than 1000 papers on mental health issues among people with epilepsy, including about 200 reviews. These studies on prevalence, treatment, and guidance for future research are important contributions to the field, and they offer great promise. Yet these papers and the multitude published in other journals over the years have failed to result in systematic, scaled changes in how the epilepsy field in the United States...

Objectives To evaluate changes in tremor severity and motor/emotion-processing circuits in response to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) delivered as treatment for functional tremor (FT), the most common functional movement disorder in adults. Methods Fifteen patients with FT underwent fMRI with motor, basic-emotion, and intense-emotion tasks before and after 12 weeks of CBT. Baseline fMRI was compared to those of 25 healthy controls (HCs). The main clinical endpoint was the tremor score (sum o...

Objective Some individuals with functional neurological disorder (FND) exhibit motor and affective disturbances, along with limbic hyper-reactivity and enhanced motor-limbic connectivity. Given that the multimodal integration network (insula, dorsal cingulate, temporoparietal junction (TPJ)) is implicated in convergent sensorimotor, affective and interoceptive processing, we hypothesised that patients with FND would exhibit altered motor and amygdalar resting-state propagation to this network. P...
