A stroke is the rapidly developing loss of brain function(s) due to a disturbance
in the blood supply to the brain. This can be due to ischemia (lack of blood supply)
caused by thrombosis or embolism or due to a hemorrhage. As a result, the affected
area of the brain is unable to function, leading to inability to move one or more
limbs on one side of the body, inability to understand or formulate speech or inability
to see one side of the visual field.

Recovery following a Stroke
After a stroke, control signals from the brain often cannot reach some muscles, typically
in the hand or foot. Without these signals, the level of electrical activity in these
muscles is too low for them to contract adequately on their own. This causes them
to become increasingly weaker.
