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 with the role of different stressors, bereavement and social support and their impact on health and disease. The volume covers also topics such as stress and cancer; the link between major depression, stress and immunity; PNI and neuroendocrine-immunology of HIV infections and several other fundamental and clinical-relevant issues.
