Middle Cerebral Artery
A stroke causing contralateral hemiplegia, UE more affected than LE, loss of sensation primarily in arm/face, homonymous hemianopsia common, and aphasia/apraxia is most likey what artery?
Anterior Cerebral Artery
A stroke causing contralateral hemiplegia, with LE more affected than UE, and can result in mental confusion, aphasia and contralateral neglect if involvement is extensive on the involved side is most likely what artery?
Posterior cerebral artery
A stroke causing persistant pain syndrome or contralateral pain and temperature sensory loss. Can also cause homonymous hemianopsia, aphaisa and thalamic pain syndrome is this artery is occluded?
Occlusion of what artery would cause "locked in" syndrome?
Anterior inferior cerebellar artery
