Objective: To investigate the overlap between dissociative and bipolar disorders through recommendation to their neurophysiological structures.
Background: Case reports of anomalous lateralization and shifts in handedness associated via both affective and also dissociative conditions have actually intermittently surchallenged in the literature. The two disorders are, yet, typically thought about to be distinct psychopathological entities.
Method: A case of co-emerging bipolar disorder and dissociative identification disorder (DID) is presented.
Results: The "switch" in personality synchronized through manic or hypomanic symptoms and also was linked with a change in handedness.
Conclusions: A parallel between the "personality" shifts that characterize DID and also the mood fluctuations that underlie bipolar disorder is attracted, suggesting some nosological overlap between the 2 disorders. The opportunity that these 2 psychiatric problems share a similar neurophysiological architecture is also elevated.
