Help with a disease!

Here's the disease I need help with. Can anyone name another disease similar to this one (NOT Spanish Flu - doesn't meet criterion #3)?

1. Infectious disease (preferably a virus)

2. Primarily strikes down people in their prime

3. Doesn't affect children as badly, if at all

4. Can affect the brain

I'm making *up* a disease for a science fiction themed game, but any info on existing diseases will help me out in creating a realistic illness. #3 is the case for the fake disease, but if I knew of real diseases like this, I might be able to come up with a quasi convincing explanation that wasn't Star Trek technobabble.

Thanks. :)
