2. Dysphagia is
- Difficulty with movement due to disruption in the motor cortex leading to a lack of innervation of the muscle fibers.
- Difficulty with swallowing due to disruption in the swallowing process.
- Difficulty with communication. Due to the hypoxic nature of a stroke, broca's (expressive) and weirnicke's (receptive) area are starved of oxygen and damaged.
3. Aphasia is
