Functional Dystonia: Differentiation From Primary Dystonia and Multidisciplinary Treatments
TLDR
A comprehensive review across the spectrum of FD, including oromandibular and vocal forms, is presented and the history, clinical clues, evidence for adjunctive “laboratory-based” testing, pathophysiological research and prognosis data are discussed.
Attitudes on Mind Over Matter: Physician Views on the Role of Placebo in Psychogenic Disorders
TLDR
In-depth interviews with neurologists and psychiatrists were conducted to assess the attitudes that contribute to ethical norms and to assess physician attitudes and practices surrounding placebo therapy to psychogenic patients to determine whether placebo therapy would be a viable option for PMD.
Development of an inpatient rehabilitation pathway for motor functional neurological disorders: Initial reflections.
TLDR
This report describes one inpatient rehabilitation facility's efforts to design and implement a clinical pathway for patients with acute-onset motor FND-patients recently hospitalized for work-up of new neurological symptoms subsequently deemed functional.
Diagnosis and management of functional neurological disorder
TLDR
A review of the latest advances in the use of validated rule-in examination signs to guide diagnosis, and the range of therapeutic approaches available to care for patients with FND focuses on the two most frequently identified subtypes of FND.
Presenting cases in front of patients: implications for a key medical education genre.
TLDR
Analysis of interview data from a study involving patient-present case presentations in a medical education setting asks what participants' metageneric comments about the encounter can teach us about the genre, about patient involvement in medical education, and about linguistic adaptations to the genre that the profession might make to support patient involvement.
Decade of progress in motor functional neurological disorder: continuing the momentum
TLDR
Advances over the past decade across diagnosis, mechanisms, aetiologies, treatments and stigma in patients with motor FND (mFND, that is, functional movement disorder and functional limb weakness) are reviewed.
Entwicklung und inhaltliche Validierung eines Fragebogens für funktionelle Bewegungsstörungen
Von Kriegszitterern zu Teenies mit TikTok-Tics – funktionelle Bewegungsstörungen galten lange als motorischer Ausdruck seelischer Turbulenzen. Tatsächlich werden psychodynamische Modelle jedoch

Cortical and spinal abnormalities in psychogenic dystonia
TLDR
The hypothesis that aberrant sensory input associated with abnormal posture may cause similar abnormalities by testing patients with psychogenic dystonia is tested.

TLDR
The preliminary findings suggest that chronic PMD with primary conversion symptoms and with recent or current depression or anxiety may respond to antidepressants.
Functional symptoms and signs in neurology: assessment and diagnosis
TLDR
An approach to the assessment and diagnosis of functional symptoms in neurology, paying attention to those symptoms that are particularly “neurological”, such as paralysis and epileptic-like attacks is summarised.
Functional symptoms in neurology: management
In this article we offer an approach to management of functional symptoms based on our own experience and on the evidence from other specialities (because the evidence from neurology is so slim). We
Somatoform disorders among first-time referrals to a neurology service.
TLDR
Somatization disorder, somatoform autonomic dysfunction, pain disorder, and neurasthenia were equally prevalent; dissociative (conversion) disorders and undifferentiated somato form disorders were found in 2-3% of the patients.
