Cytokines: Stress and Immunity, 2nd Edition

Homeostasis within the immune system is largely dependent on cytokines, the chemical messengers between immune cells. These diverse groups of proteins may be regarded as hormones of the immune system that play crucial roles in regulating immune and inflammatory responses. Pro-inflammatory cytokines, released during an immune response and inflammation activate the central components of the […]

Neurobiology of Cytokines – Part A and B

The term ‘cytokine’ originates from the combination of the Greek ‘cyto’, meaning cell, and ‘kinos’ meaning movement. Cytokines are proteins that aid cell to cell communication, typically in immune responses, exerting important regulatory functions in both innate and adaptive immune responses, and the traffic of immune cells towards sites of inflammation, infection and trauma. The […]

Neurobiology of the Immune System

Volume 52, International Review of Neurobiology International Review of Neurobiology is a well-known series appealing to neuroscientists, clinicians, psychologists, physiologists, and pharmacologists. Provides solid scientific basis to our understanding of the associations between the brain and the immune system the importance of these connections. Presents coherent development from cellular and molecular neuroimmune communication to social […]

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 […]
