In brief: Incorrect

Wet brain syndrome is a brain disease that is caused by thiamine ( vitamin b1) deficiency, seen most often in alcoholics with poor nutrition, leading to this vitamin deficiency.
Too much water intake can cause a different brain dysfunction caused by diluting the sodium concentration in the blood, leading to confusion, coma, and death( in severe cases).
