Yes! One half of
the dry weight of the brain (neurons, glial, and brain cells)
is made up of Fatty acids and Lipids. The "hard neural
connections" (synapses) between all these areas of the
brain, where the coordination of memory and learning take
place, is largely made possible by the structures of Fatty
Acids and Phospholipids alone. The physical number of neural
connections then potentiates further production of neurotransmitters
and neural buffers, and then in turn enhances memory processing
and learning even more. If the essential building blocks of
the brain's "hardware" and "software"
are not sufficiently provided for, then many "connections"
will simply not be made or developed.
