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:

Coyle, PK Neurologic Lyme Disease. Seminars in Neurology Vol 12, No 3 Sept
1992

Logigian et al Chronic Neurologic Manifestations... NEJM Vol 323 No 21
p1438 Nov 1990

Finkel, MF Lyme Disease and Its Neurologic Complications. Arch Neurol Vol
45 p99 Jan 1988

I hope these help...
