For more than 20 years, neurologist Suzanne O'Sullivan has treated
patients who have debilitating physical symptoms -- such as pain
and seizures -- with no identifiable cause. These patients,
O'Sullivan notes, "find themselves trapped in a zone between the
worlds of medicine and psychology, with neither community taking
responsibility." O'Sullivan joins Forum to talk about her new book
"Is It All in Your Head?," an exploration of psychosomatic disorders
and their causes.
