Embolic Stroke (Brain Clot)

A Very Moving Story of one Academic's Experience of Stroke and her Recovery
This is a long video but well worth the effort of watching (ed.)

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment.

Stroke Treatment

Medication

The treatment depends on the cause and thus on accurate diagnosis. Drugs like Warfarin and Aspirin that are used for ischaemic strokes (brain clots) thin the blood and reduce clotting and are thus dangerous in haemorrhagic stroke (brain bleed) where bleeding has been the problem. Most treatment is supportive. Modern surgical interventions are becoming increasingly helpful.
