Neuro-Immuno-Gastroenterology

Neuro-Immuno-Gastroenterology is edited by Cris S. Constantinescu, Rāzvan I. Arsenescu and Violeta Arsenescu, and published by Springer. This book addresses important issues regarding the interaction between the nervous system, the immune system, and the digestive system. Gut flora has a profound influence on the shaping of the immune response, not only in the gastrointestinal system […]

Insights to Neuroimmune Biology 2nd Edition

Insights to Neuroimmune Biology is edited by Istvan Berczi, and published by Elsevier. This book discusses the systemic regulatory network, coordination, organization, and interpretation of the rapidly accumulating knowledge on the topic of neuroimmune biology, with an ultimate goal of helping readers understand the function of higher organisms, including man, in their entire complexity. This […]

Neuroimmunity: A New Science That Will Revolutionize How We Keep Our Brains Healthy and Young

Neuroimmunity: A New Science That Will Revolutionize How We Keep Our Brains Healthy and Young is authored by Michal Schwartz and Olle Lindvall, and published by Yale University Press. In the past, the brain was considered an autonomous organ, self-contained and completely separate from the body’s immune system. But over the past twenty years, neuroimmunologist […]

Neuroimmune pharmacology 2nd edition

Neuroimmune pharmacology is a relatively new 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 […]

Neuroimmune Circuits, Drugs of Abuse, and Infectious Diseases

Neuroimmune Circuits, Drugs of Abuse, and Infectious Diseases (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology) is published by Springer and edited by Herman Friedman, Thomas W. Klein and John J. Madden. The book is based on the proceedings of the 7th annual symposium on the topic Neuroimmune Circuits, Infectious Diseases and Drugs of Abuse, held in […]

Influence of the Sympathetic Nervous System on Regulatory T cells: Another Link in Neuro-Immune Interactions

Influence of the Sympathetic Nervous System on Regulatory T cells: Another Link in Neuro-Immune Interactions

Overview article Homeostatic control of the immune system is dependent on CD4, FoxP3+, NKT or antigen-specific CD4+ or CD8+ regulatory T cells. These regulatory T cells are essential to prevent or mitigate autoimmunity and the immune response to non-self antigens. Herein is an overview of our observations on the inhibition of the induction of splenic […]

Mainstream Immunology Research and Cultural Separation

Mainstream Immunology Research and Cultural Separation

Editorials & Opinion One of the curious aspects of modern biomedicine is the “cultural separation” of immunology research from neurobiology and physiology research. One can argue that the failure to link the immune system to the brain (and vice versa) has played a role in the immunology’s minimal progress from the bench to the bedside […]
