Intrinsic religiosity (IR) and nonorganizational religiosity (NOR) were higher in PWEs than in… Expand
Epilepsy characteristics and cognitive, social, and mood functions in relation to intrinsic religiosity
TLDR
A higher IR was related to TLE-HS, EA in the left hemisphere, later onset of epilepsy, a better performance in the semantic verbal fluency (SVF) test, and the absence of depressive disorders, suggesting a complex neurophysiological relationship involving multiple factors. Expand
Religiosity and spirituality in patients with epilepsy.
TLDR

Effects of religiosity and religious coping on medication adherence and quality of life among people with epilepsy

Negative, but not positive, religious coping strategies are associated with psychological distress, independent of religiosity, in Korean adults with epilepsy
TLDR
A relationship between religious coping strategies and psychological distress in Korean adults with epilepsy who had a religious affiliation is determined and significant positive associations between negative religious coping and anxiety and depressive symptoms in PWE are found. Expand
