    About This Project

    Women with epileptic-type seizures that have psychological causes wait an average of 7.2 years to be corectly diagnosed. They often have severe abuse and abandonment histories and waiting for the proper diagnosis and treatment ads insult to injury. Our published assay identifies patients with psychogenic seizures vs. healthy controls with 90% accuracy. We hypothesize that the same biomarkers will also identify psychogenic seizure patients vs. epilepsy patients.
