Hello. Mad cow disease is caused by prions. Prions are abnormal proteins. They have simpler structure than viruses. Human form of this disease is known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Prions are found in brain, eye, spinal cord, and other tissues of the nervous system. That is one can experience psychiatric and sensory symptoms. Onset can be manifested by neurological symptoms. Later, dementia, ataxia or memory impairment can occur. So, you can see that the brain function is pretty affected. I hope this helps.
