Every body function from your heart beating to you digesting food your brain has a hand in the correct functioning of it. when you brain gets an unwelcome visitor it has it’s own immune system to deal with it. Unfortunately because nothing is supposed to get into the brain the immune system is not very good at picking out the bad guys and starts to not only try to kill the invaders, but it starts to kill itself.
