Neuroimmunomodulation involves interactions between the immune and nervous systems at all levels and includes observations on brain, pituitary, peripheral nervous system, and immune cells. The central nervous system alters the immune response through the activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and the sympathetic nervous system. This volume focuses the molecular basis of connecting pathways in neuroimmunomodulation; cytokines and/or chemokines that regulate nervous and/or endocrine tissues; behavioral effects on neuroimmunomodulation; and stress, inflammation, and disease.
