The Ovid Medline database was searched entering the key words "herpes simplex virus-1" and "children." The search was limited to humans, the English language, and the years 1996 through 2007. The PsychINFO database was searched for English articles between 1990 and 2007, entering the key words "herpes simplex virus-1" and "emotion." In addition to searching the Ovid Medline and PsychINFO databases, an ancestor search was completed of the main review articles found from the databases. Finally, recent editions of pediatric, pharmacology, and pathophysiology textbooks were consulted.
