Dissociative Disorders of Movement and Sensation

There is a loss of or interference with movements or loss of sensations (usually cutaneous). Mild and transient varieties of these disorders are often seen in adolescence, particularly in girls, but the chronic varieties are usually found in young adults.

Ganser’s syndrome – „approximate” or grossly incorrect answers

Multiple personality disorder means the apparent existence of two or more distinct personalities within an individual, with only one of them being evident at a time (Mr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde). Each personality is complete, with its own memories, behaviours, and preferences, but neither has access to the memories of the other and the two are almost always unaware of each other’s existence. Change from one personality to another is in the first instance usually sudden and closely associated with traumatic events.
