Multiple personality, seizure disorder, and the electroencephalogram.

Abstract

The electroencephalogram (EEG) in a case of multiple personality was described. Despite conflicting reports in the literature we found no changes in the EEG which could not be ascribed to the normal changes seen in transitions from various states of alertness. The problems of differentiating multiple personality as a psychiatric entity in itself from those cases arising as a result of chronic partial or partial-complex epilepsy are discussed. Further research with more sophisticated electrophysiological data acquisition and data reduction equipment is suggested.
