Hysterical seizure disorders are studied in terms of their behavioral manifestation & their relationship to personality structure in this double-blind study. Those with organic seizures alone (n=11), organic & psychogenic (hysterical) seizures (n=13) & those with pure psychogenic seizures were assessed clinically & by SADS-L, psychiatric history, the WAIS, Bender-Gestalt, MMPI, & the Rorschach. Significant inter-group differences are discussed.(NBB)
