    I kind of like those papers that just say plainly what they mean and make it all super awkward for the people who try to pretend that it's not what it means even though of course that's exactly what they mean.

    Bizarre that it comes here from a paper that argues for observed physiological changes when the whole point of conversion disorder is precisely no involvement from physiology. It's a lesion, but psychologically induced? Is hypoperfusion really indicative of lesions? Is it really a lesion if it changes "later" (not clear when that later is).

    This is a complicated case with head trauma prior to the SPECT:
    No idea where someone gets the idea that there is "conversion disorder" here. The level of confusion is very high.

    It is so weird that they call it an emotionally based illness because there are no physical signs but then demonstrate physical signs to confirm they are right o_O
