In brief: Lack of oxygen

In a stroke, brain areas that are essential to function such as language and movement are deprived of oxygen and nutrients.
These areas stop functioning soon after blood flow stops. If flow is not restored promptly, these portions of the brain will be permanently damaged.

Cell death is due to the accumulation of metabolic waste products leading to irreversible phosphorylation....not the lack of oxygen

In brief: Location

The symptoms of a stroke depend on which area of the brain is damaged by the stroke.
A small stroke in the brain stem can affect a lot of functions.
