Abstract This study investigated mismatch negativity (MMN) differences between subjects with non-epileptic seizures (NES), subjects with epilepsy, and healthy controls. Event-related potentials (ERPs) were obtained from 14 patients with NES, 15 patients with epilepsy and 16 healthy control subjects. A conventional MMN procedure was used with a random sequence of 12\% deviant tones (922 Hz) and 88\% standard tones (1000 Hz). Subjects were instructed to ignore the tones delivered through headphones whilst reading a book. Significant differences in distribution of the mismatch negativity (MMN) in patients with NES compared to controls were obtained (F3, p This article was published in Epileptic Disord and referenced in Pediatrics & Therapeutics
