BrainImmune and Brief History of Neuroendocrine Immunology and Stress-Immune Interactions

Neurosciences and immunology developed independently for many years, and thus, the question of how the brain communicates with the immune system remained enigmatic until fairly recently. Our BrainImmune video provides brief historical perspectives on the development of neuroendocrine immunology and stress-immune interactions, and on some major figures, concepts and ideas that eventually brought together the […]

Historical Perspectives The brain and the immune system, or the “supersystems”, a term coined by Tomio Tada (1997), are the two major adaptive systems of the body. Although the immune system has been often regarded as autonomous, the evidence accumulated over several decades indicates that the central nervous system (CNS) receives messages from the immune […]
