Psychological and psychiatric aspects of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES): A systematic review - PubMed (nih.gov) I thought this review from 2016 of Psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) was quite interesting because it suggests we know very little about this condition and that the name - implying a psychological cause - is inappropriate. I haven't found much criticism of the PNES however in the literature, for example by patients or physicians who think the attribution to a psychological cause is inappropriate. Large epilepsy foundations also seem to promote the PNES and psychogenic theories about it, without difficulty. See for example: The Truth about Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizures | Epilepsy Foundation Are there forum members who know more about PNES? For example reliable evidence why the term psychogenic is justified or criticism of why it is not?
