This segment involves a patient with an ischemic brain attack whose early entry into the healthcare system allows her to benefit from the use of new intervention therapies. Cerebral anatomy is explained including descriptions of specific deficits that result from commonly occurring types of ischemic brain attack. The pathophysiology of neurological damage is described including the initial response of the brain to ischemia and the secondary trauma, both of which the new intervention treatments can help modify.
