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 within the skin.

The volume is perhaps the first book devoted to the complex interactions between the neuroendocrine and the immune systems and their impact on cutaneous immunity. Importantly, the book includes several chapters that discuss skin pathology, and how these interactions affects several skin immune-mediated diseases.

Neuroimmunology of the Skin contributors are among the leading experts in this field worldwide. The book’s contents includes topics such as Autonomic nervous system and psychological stress effects on skin immune function; Stress and urticaria; Regulation of cutaneous immunity by catecholamines; Neuroimme mechanisms in psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis; Neuroimmunology of atopic dermatitis and several others.
