What is a stroke?

A stroke is now more usually described as a brain attack and occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted. Our brains require a constant supply of oxygen and essential nutrients to function normally. When the blood supply to parts of the brain is reduced this can lead to permanent cell death in those areas.

A stroke (brain attack) most commonly causes difficulties with movement, but in some cases structures are involved which are responsible for language, thinking, feeling and perception.
