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 two volumes of Psychoneuroimmunology include the following sections:
