Just Wondering

The parasite Toxoplasma gondii increases GABA levels in mice to dangerous levels where they behave fearlessly in the presence of cats (not a good idea for a mouse!). I wonder if this parasite could be responsible for some cases of hypersomnia in humans and, if so, how to eliminate it from the patient’s body?
