Neuroimmunology of the Skin: Basic Science to Clinical Practice

Neuroimmunology of the Skin offers a comprehensive overview on several fundamental and clinical aspects of the neural- and neurohormonal-immune interactions and the influence of the nervous system on immunity within the skin. The book addresses the recent advance and the latest scientific developments related to the skin neuroendocrine-immunology. The volume is perhaps the first book […]

Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology: Neuroimmunology (Springer Reference) 3rd Edition

This is the first time that the Handbook of Neurochemistry series includes neuroimmunology. Neuroimmunology is a relatively new but rapidly growing interdisciplinary field that bridges neurosciences and immunology. With contributions that include many recognized international experts, the volume contains chapters that focus on various basic and fundamental topics and concepts, but also on the complex […]

Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology: Neurotransmitter Systems 3rd Edition

A classic book about several basic concepts and the latest developments in the field of neurochemistry and neuroscience. The Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology is the result of a collaborative work of numerous established experts worldwide. The volume covers several research areas such as in vivo imaging of neurotransmitter systems, molecular genetics of the […]

Stress, Stress Hormones and the Immune System

Stress, Stress Hormones and the Immune System provides an extensive overview on the interactions between the neuroendocrine and immune systems and the effects of stress hormones on immunity. This volume is perhaps the first book focusing on the cross-talk between the brain, the stress and immune systems, addressing some fundamental and clinical implications. The 1st […]

Psychoneuroimmunology: Stress, Mental Disorders and Health (Progress in Psychiatry)

Another excellent book devoted to the interdisciplinary area of research known as psychoneuroimmunology (PNI). The field bridges together psychiatry, neurology, neuroendocrinology and immunology. The book is the result of a collaborative work of many international experts including Cobi J. Heijnen, Pranela Rameshwar, Nancy G. Klimas and many others. Psychoneuroimmunology: Stress, Mental Disorders and Health deals […]

Brain and Biodefence (Taniguchi Symposia on Brain Sciences, Vol. 21)

Brain and Biodefence is devoted to neural- and neurohormonal-immune interactions, a relatively new field of medical research. This book covers the current research and several major issues of the interdisciplinary area known as neuroimmunology, neuroimmunomodulation, psychoneuroimmunology or neuroendocrine-immunology. This research field incorporates a variety of disciplines including neuroscience, endocrinology, immunology, anatomy, biochemistry, pharmacology, microbiology and […]

Mind over Matter – Regulation of Peripheral Inflammation by the CNS

Mind over Matter provides expert and state-of-the-art overviews in the interdisciplinary area of brain-immune interactions. The book covers several research areas such as peripheral innervation of lymphoid organs, role of the autonomic and sympathetic nervous system in regulation of immunity, inflammation and pain, stress and inflammation, neurohormonal mechanisms involved in immune cell recruitment, and the […]

Psychoneuroimmunology, Two-Volume Set, Volume 1-2, Fourth Edition

Psychoneuroimmunology provides comprehensive and up-to-date information on the vast interdisciplinary research area that covers the interactions between the brain and the immune system. The revised and updated fourth edition offers experts opinions and overviews of the behavioral and neuroendocrine effects on the immune system, and vice versa, effects of immune system activity on brain functions. […]

The Psychoneuroimmunology of Chronic Disease: Exploring the Links between Inflammation, Stress, and Illness

The Psychoneuroimmunology of Chronic Disease delves into the complex interactions between the brain and immune system, and between inflammation, stress and human diseases. Importantly, it also offers both fundamental and clinical perspectives on how these interactions may influence common complex inflammatory maladies such as heart disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer s, and autoimmune disorders. The […]

New Insights to Neuroimmune Biology (Elsevier Insights)

The chapters of this book present various mechanisms that have relevance to Neuroimmune Biology. The investigators selected are in the forefront of research in their areas and are internationally recognized. The papers cover molecular regulation of cytokines in brain astrocytes, immunoregulation by the sympathetic nervous system, circadian regulation of immune reactions, antigen recognition by the […]
