Abstract

It is commonly believed that people perform less
efficiently when suffering from viral illnesses such as
colds or influenza, but there is a scarcity of both
conclusive research and replicated data providing
scientific evidence for this. The current review gives an
appraisal of research into the cognitive effects of viral
illnesses and their implications for future research into
the hepatitis C virus (HCV), which has been neglected so
far in the behavioural virology area. The natural history
and aetiology of HCV, including coverage of modes of
transmission for chronic and acute HCV and their
implications for experimental investigations are also
discussed. Finally, there is a summary detailing the
importance of behavioural research into HCV and providing
suggestions for future studies in the area.
