What it is: That means that a very small blood vessel is blocked. That vessel supplies the white matter under the grey cells in your right frontal lobe of the brain. It is in the area that has fibers that transmit signals from the grey cells to other parts of the brain. Usually, there are no problems, but you should see a neurologist to make sure that all is well.
