>Can someone fill me in on some of the neuropsychiatric effects of Lyme's?
Lyme can produce an 'encephalopathy' with a wide variety of clinical
manifestations, including memory loss, depression, insomnia, irritablity
and language impairment.
Most references are to the 'neurologic' rather than specifically
neurobehavioral aspects of the disease. Here's a few:

45 p99 Jan 1988
I hope these help...
