12 Signs & Symptoms of Stroke

Aphasia /Difficulty in Speaking

The brain is also involved in our speeches. In fact, it plays a huge role in communication, as it is the coordinator of this ability. When one side of the body of a stroke patient is paralyzed, the other part is very much affected. Meanwhile, both sides of the body are needed for communication. The dominant hemisphere which is speech resides in the left hemisphere of the brain while the right hemisphere plays a vital role in interpreting visual information. Hence, in the process of a stroke attack, if the part of the brain responsible for language is affected, communication, including verbal becomes a severe problem. [1]
