Our brain is composed of thousands of thousands of brain cells that send messages to each other. The messages travel from one end of the cell across the myelin sheath to the other end.
The myelin sheath is made of fat that acts as an insulator. If the fat insulation disappears, which can happen if your body is lacking enough fats, the braions cells can quit sending messages to one another and die.
