Sickness Behaviour: Causes and Effects

M Viljoen, A Panzer

Abstract


This paper discusses sickness behaviour as a central motivational state. It deals with the adaptational value and underlying mechanisms of sickness behaviour and with the consequences of the body's failure to terminate the activity of the symptoms-producing cytokines.
