Neuroimmunology of the Skin: Basic Science to Clinical Practice

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 and the influence of the nervous system on immunity within the skin. The book addresses the recent advance and the latest scientific developments related to the skin neuroendocrine-immunology. The volume is perhaps the first book […]

Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology: Neuroimmunology (Springer Reference) 3rd Edition

Handbook of Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology: Neuroimmunology (Springer Reference) 3rd Edition

This is the first time that the Handbook of Neurochemistry series includes neuroimmunology. Neuroimmunology is a relatively new but rapidly growing interdisciplinary field that bridges neurosciences and immunology. With contributions that include many recognized international experts, the volume contains chapters that focus on various basic and fundamental topics and concepts, but also on the complex […]

Brain and Biodefence (Taniguchi Symposia on Brain Sciences, Vol. 21)

Brain and Biodefence (Taniguchi Symposia on Brain Sciences, Vol. 21)

Brain and Biodefence is devoted to neural- and neurohormonal-immune interactions, a relatively new field of medical research. The book covers several major issues of the interdisciplinary area and research known as neuroimmunology, neuroimmunomodulation or neuroendocrine-immunology. This volume delves into several fundamental questions such as: how the brain regulates the immune system; how the immune system […]

New Insights to Neuroimmune Biology (Elsevier Insights)

New Insights to Neuroimmune Biology (Elsevier Insights)

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 […]

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

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

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 […]

Neuroendocrine Immunology in 2014 – What Was Hot and Some Conceptual Trends as Presented on BrainImmune

Neuroendocrine Immunology in 2014 – What Was Hot and Some Conceptual Trends as Presented on BrainImmune

EDITORIALS & OPINIONS In 2014 we witnessed a rapid growth of the research and studies at the interface and intersection of neurosciences and immunology. This vast interdisciplinary area, often referred to as neuroendocrine immunology or neuroimmunology, also includes stress-immune interactions that may have complex and multifaceted impact on health and disease. Last year also brought […]

Sex Hormones and Immunoregulation

Sex Hormones and Immunoregulation

OVERVIEW ARTICLE The sexual dimorphism in immune responses in humans is well known; females have more vigorous cellular and humoral immune responses, they are more resistant to many infections, and they suffer a higher incidence of autoimmune diseases as compared with males [reviewed in Reference 1]. Moreover, in women disease expression appears to be affected […]

Brain-Immune Signaling: Focus on Pathogen Recognition and PGE2 Synthesis

Brain-Immune Signaling: Focus on Pathogen Recognition and PGE2 Synthesis

OVERVIEW ARTICLE The body’s reaction to infections involves the orchestration of multiple systems to effectively initiate, execute and resolve the immune response. At the core of these adaptive processes are the cellular and molecular neural, immune and endocrine interactions that begin with the central nervous system recognizing the presence of an infection. The mediator prostaglandin […]

Nerve Growth Factor and Inflammation: A Complex Bidirectional Interaction

Nerve Growth Factor and Inflammation: A Complex Bidirectional Interaction

OVERVIEW ARTICLE The nervous and immune systems share common functions: both are involved in adapting the body to the environment and in maintaining homeostasis. Because they are the two major adaptive systems of the body it is not surprising that they have developed common strategies: both are able to sense external and internal variations, which […]
