Abstract

Falling seizures are a heterogeneous group of epileptic seizures in which the fall represents the main or only clinical manifestation. Current knowledge on basic mechanisms of epileptic falling seizures is still limited; subcortical as well as cortical mechanisms have been proposed to play a role in the origin of these types of seizures. Appropriate neurophysiological investigations, particularly video-polygraphic recordings, have been, so far, extremely useful to describe the electro-clinical characteristics of these phenomena, and it is conceivable that a more diffuse application of these techniques will provide further insights on the different types of falling seizures and their pathophysiological mechanisms.
