What a Stroke Does to the Body
The three areas where you can see or hear the effects of a stroke are in the survivor's:
- Motor Functions
- Autonomic Functions (Breathing, Swallowing, etc.)
Some parts of the brain may have died, while others may be recovering
- In general, speech, writing and short term memory are all affected.
- Pathways in the brain will move more slowly or not at all.
- Making decisions, weighing pros and cons, and engaging in logical or rational thinking may be a thing of the past.
