In situation of forced normalisation some patients develop psychiatric symptomps, that may nullify the benefits of treatments. In order to evaluate the risk that the pharmacological or neurosurgical therapy can provoke the emersion of psychic pathology which is holds in the convulsive symptom, it is indispensable to deduct, if and to what degree the epileptic symptom is functional to the cohesion of the Ego. The aim of this protocol leads to identify and define the interaction between a neuronal disfunction and an intrapsychic defensive organisation, as well as the possibility to disengage this interaction.
