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 contribution of corticotropin-releasing hormone or adenosine in immunoregulation.

The volume is useful to neuroscientists and immunologists interested in the rapidly growing field of neuroimmunology and neuroendocrine immunology.
