Atonic seizures are a type of seizure that causes sudden loss of muscle strength. These seizures are also called akinetic seizures, drop attacks or drop seizures. The sudden lack of muscle strength, or tone, can cause the person to fall to the ground. The person usually remains conscious, and may not always fall down.
Atonic seizures oftentimes begin during childhood and are most common in children, although they may continue into adulthood. EEG tests are also conducted to measure the effectiveness of anti-seizure medications by testing how the drugs help with the electrical malfunction in the brain.
