Globally, there are over 101 million people currently living with a stroke and over 12.2 million new strokes occur each year. A stroke is caused by a disruption in blood flow to a part of the brain when a blood vessel either ruptures or becomes blocked resulting in some sort of brain damage. The impairments and disability that a person with a stroke experiences is widely variable and depends on the size of the brain lesion and which part(s) of the brain are damaged.
- Gain an understanding of the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology underlying the causes, types and symptoms of stroke conditions
