During atherosclerosis plaque and debris breaks off from narrowed arteries and interfere in bloodstream due to which brain receives less amount of blood and cell death takes place. Sometimes a clot that is formed in heart usually known as embolism gets detached from heart and travels to brain again causing interference to blood stream and causing brain damage.
