Epilepsy is a common neurological condition with wide-ranging neuropsychiatric manifestations. Its relationship with psychiatry has been recognised for centuries.


The recognition and management of neuropsychiatric conditions in epilepsy can be challenging. In this module, we look at the common neuropsychiatric manifestations of epilepsy and how to manage them. We also look at the management and assessment of patients presenting with functional non-epileptic attacks.
