In recent years, researchers worldwide have expanded our understanding of how, and the degree to which, the immune system interacts with the nervous system, and vice versa. In this issue of Clinical & Experimental Immunology, we are pleased to present our new Review Series: 'Neuroimmune interactions: how the nervous and immune systems influence each other', a collection of four Review articles commissioned by Leonie S. Taams from leading researchers in this exciting interdisciplinary field. The collection covers key technical, experimental and clinical findings in the fast-developing field of neuroimmunology.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Clinical and experimental immunology
The microbiome modulates host immune function across the gastrointestinal tract, peripheral lymphoid organs, and central nervous system. In this review, we highlight emerging evidence that microbial e...
It is widely accepted that communication between the nervous and immune systems is involved in the development of chronic pain. At each level of the nervous system, immune cells have been reported to ...
The nervous and immune systems both serve as essential assessors and regulators of physiological function. Recently, there has been a great interest in how the nervous and immune systems interact to m...
Pregnancy and the postpartum period are periods of significant change in the immune and endocrine systems. This period of life is also associated with an increased risk of mental health disorders in t...
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is characterized by hemolysis, inflammation, and pain. Mechanisms of pain manifestation are complex, and there is a major gap in knowledge of how the nervous and immune syste...
In this study, a novel human laboratory model will be evaluated. Acute opioid-induced neuroimmune responses will be quantified among healthy volunteers (Specific Aim). To measure the neuro...
The process by which the body responds to stressors to maintain homeostasis is called allostasis and is dependent on the integrated function of the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. ...
The goal of this study is to characterize biophysiolgoical signals as a comprehensive profile of the nervous systems in order to understand interactions between the brain and body, while a...
Cytokines such as such as TNF-a, IL-1, IL-6 correlate with the severity of pancreatitis.Neuroendocrine pathways, such as the sympathetic nervous system or parasympathetic nervous system, i...
This study examines the effects of moderate alcohol intake on the brain, the immune system, and cognition.
The biochemical and electrophysiological interactions between the NERVOUS SYSTEM and IMMUNE SYSTEM that result in regulation of the immune system by the nervous system.
Disorders caused by cellular or humoral immune responses primarily directed towards nervous system autoantigens. The immune response may be directed towards specific tissue components (e.g., myelin) and may be limited to the central nervous system (e.g., MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS) or the peripheral nervous system (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME).
Biological adaptation, such as the rise of EPINEPHRINE in response to exercise, stress or perceived danger, followed by a fall of epinephrine during RELAXATION. Allostasis is the achievement of stability by turning on and turning off the allostatic systems including the IMMUNE SYSTEM; the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM and NEUROENDOCRINE SYSTEMS.
An eleven-amino acid neurotransmitter that appears in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. It is involved in transmission of PAIN, causes rapid contractions of the gastrointestinal smooth muscle, and modulates inflammatory and immune responses.
Mechanisms of action and interactions of the components of the IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Allergies Automimmune Disease Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Immunology Vaccine Immunology is the study of immunity and the defence mechanisms of the body. A greater understanding of immunology is needed to develop vaccines, understand ...
