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 interactions between neuroimmunology and the pathogenesis of human diseases.
Some of the topics that are discussed in this volume include: Effects of the immune system on brain neurochemistry; Cytokines and the immune–neuroendocrine network; Drugs targeting the sympathetic–immune interface and treatment of autoimmune diseases; Neuropeptides in the immune system as mediators of stress and inflammation.
EDITORS: Abel Lajtha, Armen Galoyan and Hugo Besedovsky.
