NONEPILEPTIC SEIZURE (NES)

an event which is alike to an epileptic seizure but isn't generated by an abnormal electrical discharge in the brain. According to the Epilepsy Foundation, these seizures might be categorized as physiologic nonepileptic seizures, that are correlated with metabolic disturbances and include syncope and temporary ischemic attacks, or as psychogenic: nonepileptic seizures. Nonepileptic seizures are commonly referred to as pseudoseizures, nonepileptic events, or pseudoepilepsy, even though utilization of the latter two terms is now discouraged.
