Abstract

The links between infectious agents and risk for schizophrenia have been widely debated, but few investigations have focused on "epidiagnostic" effects, eg, whether exposures to infectious agents alter key clinical aspects of the disorder, such as cognitive impairment. The present theme issue evaluates epidiagnostic cognitive effects of two common infectious agents, namely Herpes Simplex Virus, type 1 and Toxoplasma gondii.
