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 […]

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 […]

Neuroimmunology of Sleep

Sleep participates in the regulation of several physiological processes such as energy metabolism, neural plasticity and immune functions. Sleep and immune responses are reciprocally and closely linked. Sleep abnormalities affect immunity, whereas, on the other hand, the immune response, activated for instance by an infection, alters sleep. Sleep is also considered to be an important […]

The Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis, Volume 7 (NeuroImmune Biology)

The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis controls reactions to stress and regulates various body processes such as digestion, the immune system, mood and sexuality, and energy usage. This volume focuses on the immune system and provides substantive experimental and clinical data to support current understanding in the field, and potential applications of this knowledge in the treatment of […]

Immunoendocrinology in Health and Disease

The first part of this book (pp. 1-415) is devoted to the fundamental aspects of the interactions between the adaptive immune system and the endocrine system. After a global view of immunological development and biology, 19 chapters extensively present the state of knowledge about the influence upon the immune response exerted by peptide hormones (growth […]

The Stress of Life

The Stress of Life, a classic book written by the man who introduced the term (psychological) “stress” and “dedicated his entire scientific career to furnish more and more proof for the importance of neuroendocrine mechanisms in the development of disease. János Hugo Bruno “Hans” Selye (January 26, 1907 – October 16, 1982) was a pioneering […]
