Nerve Growth Factor and Inflammation: A Complex Bidirectional Interaction

Nerve Growth Factor and Inflammation: A Complex Bidirectional Interaction

Overview article The nervous and immune systems share common functions: both are involved in adapting the body to the environment and in maintaining homeostasis. Because they are the two major adaptive systems of the body it is not surprising that they have developed common strategies: both are able to sense external and internal variations, which […]

The Neuroimmune Biology of Vasopressin

The Neuroimmune Biology of Vasopressin

Overview article Vasopressin (VP) has emerged in recent years as a very important immunoregulatory peptide of the hypothalamus. VP is capable of maintaining immune function, both innate and adaptive immunity. This is due to the ability of VP to stimulate both the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and prolactin (PRL) secretion. The HPA axis is important for […]

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 […]
