Ischemic brain injury is a leading cause of stroke. Symptoms are typically unnoticed until after the injury has occurred. Decreased attention and difficulty with memory are two results of ischemic brain injury. In addition, the person may experience movement and balance problems, and display changes in behavior. They may be weepy, not be able to control themselves, have a hard time paying attention, or more crabby or moody. If oxygen does not get to the brain fairly quickly, a person may become unconscious.
