Skywalker protein required for the formation of connections between neurons. This protein is part of the nervous system of flies. Analogue Skywalker is in humans. Some mutations that affect protein affect the concentration of fat in the brain.

Experiments with flies have helped scientists to bring the perfect concentration of fat reducing the frequency of epileptic seizures. It is possible that this method will work with the human body.
