Neuroimmune Pharmacology 2nd Edition

Neuroimmune pharmacology is a relatively young discipline, however well-grounded on interdisciplinary basic and translational research in pharmacology, immunology and neuroscience, aiming at the therapeutic exploitation of the rapidly growing knowledge about physiology and pathology of nervous system-immune system interconnections. The Society on Neuroimmune Pharmacology was founded in1993, while the first issue of the Journal of […]

Rethinking Homeostasis: Allostatic Regulation in Physiology and Pathophysiology

Rethinking Homeostasis: Allostatic Regulation in Physiology and Pathophysiology is published by A Bradford Book and authored by Jay Schulkin. Homeostasis as a concept and term was introduced by the American physiologist WalterCannon and refers to the stability of the inner world, or the various bodily states that make up the internal environment. Examples include for […]

Pain and Neuroimmune Interactions

Pain and Neuroimmune Interactions is published by Springer and edited by Nayef E. Saade, Nayef E. Saadé, Suhayl J. Jabbur and A. Vania Apkarian. Pain is a product of various pathways and mechanisms within the nervous system in response to inflammation or trauma. Over 1.5 billion people suffer from chronic pain with 3-4.5% of the […]

Immunoendocrinology: Scientific and Clinical Aspects

Immunoendocrinology: Scientific and Clinical Aspects is published by Humana Press and edited by George S. Eisenbarth. The book is focused on autoimmune disorders, and particularly, endocrine autoimmune diseases. With the exception of celiac disease, the environmental factors that contribute to the onset, development and the marked increase in many of these disorders remain poorly understood. […]

Bodily Changes in Pain, Hunger, Fear and Rage: An Account of Recent Researches into the Function of Emotional Excitement

‘Bodily Changes in Pain, Hunger, Fear and Rage’ is authored by Walter Bradford Cannon, an American physician-scientist and physiologist, chairman (1906-1942) of the Department of Physiology at Harvard Medical School, who introduced, developed and popularized three ideas and concepts that are well known and widely accepted: homeostasis, fight-or-flight responses, and the sympathoadrenal system. Early in […]

An Introduction to the Study of Experimental Medicine

An Introduction to the Study of Experimental Medicine, a masterpiece and a classic book which is still read, is written by Claude Bernard, the father of modern physiology and experimental medicine. In 1865, forced by sickness to abandon his teaching and research activities, Bernard wrote this book, establishing as general principles his thoughts about experimentation […]

Neural-Immune Interactions in Brain Function and Alcohol Related Disorders

Neural-Immune Interactions in Brain Function and Alcohol Related Disorders presents the recent advances in neuro-immune and alcohol research, relevant to brain function, behavior and alcohol use disorders.  Recent up-to-date and cutting edge development is provided by experts in the field of neuroendocrine-immunology and alcohol use disorders. Neuroendocrine-immunology and neural-immune interactions offer a new framework for […]

The Physiology of Immunity

The Physiology of Immunity (Comparative Immunology) provides an overview of the immune system and integrates physiology and immunology, outlining the effects of the neuroendocrine system on immunity, and comparing the neuroendocrine-immune function of a variety of species. Neuroendocrine-immunology or immunophysiology has become a highly visible and fast-growing area in modern inter-disciplinary research. This book’s sections […]

The Neuroendocrine Immune Network

The Neuroendocrine Immune Network is published by CRC Press and edited by Serem Freier, German, British and Israeli pediatrician and medical educator. The book’s major focus is neuroendocrine-immunology or the interactions between the nervous, endocrine and immune systems. It addresses the anatomical basis of these interactions, including the innervation of lymphoid tissues and mast cells, […]
