We applied conversation analysis in an unselected continuous series of 70 patients to discriminate patients with psychogenic nonepilepticseizures (PNES) from patients with epilepsy. Two psychologists examined the patients' recorded reports. Patients were also submitted to an extensive neuropsychological battery in order to verify whether specific cognitive deficits or mental health problems are typical of patients with PNES and whether ...
