In brief: Trans fats

Great question! adding to dr. Novick's response, trans fats also get incorporated into the membrane structure of your cells.
This can affect the receptors on those cells, making them less responsive to chemical messengers essential in the running of your body (including your brain). It's best to have a supply of healthy fats around that your body can use to make healthy cell membranes.
