Ultimately STROKE: The brain is the cpu of our human body controlling its ability to comprehend speach, assimilate words, see, hear, swallow, coordinate movement and assimilate tactile feeling from our environmnt. Like any organ, just as the engine of a car needs gas 2 work, if circulation is compromised then the ability of that organ to function properly can also be compromised - occnl transient or may b permanent.

A patient/paramedic reminds me that with lesser degrees of circulation compromise you can get fainting, seizures and even temporary positional imbalance.
