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 central nervous system, the modulation of the immune response by head injury, neurogenic inflammation, the role of tachykinins in asthma and allergic disease, defense and defeat reactions, cytokines, behavior and affective disorders, and increased activity of type 1 helper T cell functions after reward stimulation.
This book contributes to the fields of biology, medicine and veterinary medicine as it discusses molecular, cellular, organic and systemic aspects as well as the relevant physiological, pathophysiological and behavioral mechanisms.
