A brief lapse in consciousness -absence seizures, formerly known as petit mal seizures, are characterized by a brief lapse in consciousness accompanied by rapid eye blinking, lip smacking, and minor myoclonus of the upper extremities. short, abrupt muscle contraction symptoms refers to myoclonic seizure; therefore, it is incorrect. quick, bilateral severe jerking movements refers to tonic clonic, formerly known as grand mal, seizures; therefore, it is incorrect. abrupt loss of muscle tone refers to atonic seizures; therefore, it is incorrect.
