I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Zoe, please?

Can her behavior be disrupted once it begins? Does she respond to you when called? Does she appear disoriented/confused during this behavior? My primary concern is encephalopathy (brain disorder) in such patient.
