Journal of the Hillside Hospital. XIV, 1965: Weeping, Urination, and Grand Mal. George Devereux. Pp. 97-107.

Specific case material and anthropological data are used to demonstrate the utilization of sudden bursting into tears, and active 'orgastic' urination for the expression of inhibited emotions. A particular patient's grand mal seizures represented a cataleptic 'orgastic type of discharge' of inhibition of affect, as was true with her weeping and urination.
