Dissociative fugue or dissociative identity disorder

This is an item of interest and we do not run into too many of this in the news. I was at the train station yesterday reading the NY times and was struck by the news article that talked about a Denver man having a rare disorder called dissociative fugue... (defined as the existence in an individual of two or more distinct personalities or ego-states, each with its own pattern of perceiving and interacting with the environment).

There is no known neurological explanation - but I am sure there will be in the years to come. Make for interesting reading especially it has echoes of some of the great Oliver Sachs stories... (this book is highly recommended).

Read on more from a new article at the place where it happened (where else but Denver, TX)
