Brain and Biodefence is devoted to neural- and neurohormonal-immune interactions, a relatively new field of medical research. The book covers several major issues of the interdisciplinary area and research known as neuroimmunology, neuroimmunomodulation or neuroendocrine-immunology.
This volume delves into several fundamental questions such as: how the brain regulates the immune system; how the immune system signals the brain and affects the neuroendocrine system’s activity, and how these bidirectional interactions impact on health and disease.
Brain and Biodefence discusses topics such as the ‘Hypothalamic Modulation of Delayed type Hypersensitivity’, ‘Neuroendocrine Regulation of Th1/Th2 Balance’, ‘Sympathetic Modulation of Immunity in Aging’ and many others.
