BACKGROUND Conversion disorder (motor type) describes weakness that is not due to recognized disease or conscious simulation but instead is thought to be a "psychogenic" phenomenon. It is a common clinical problem in neurology but its neural correlates remain poorly understood. OBJECTIVE To compare the neural correlates of unilateral functional weakness in conversion disorder with those in healthy controls asked to simulate unilateral weakness.
