The book summarises the current understanding of the Nervous -, Endocrine and Immune systems with emphasis on shared mediators and receptors and functional interaction. In addition to the fundamental physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms, which are presented in detail, some clinically relevant subjects are also presented, such as inflammation, asthma and allergy, autoimmune disease, immunodeficiency and the acute phase response. • A comprehensive presentation of neuroimmune biology • Introduces the subject matter to the uninformed reader • Contains basic information, theoretical considerations and up-to-date clinical chapters • The clinical chapters will be helpful to practising physicians

Insights to Neuroimmune Biology, Second Edition 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 publication provides assessments and interpretations of accumulated experimental evidence, enabling the scientific community to keep abreast of essential advancements of existing knowledge as we search for greater understanding of the biology of higher organisms. Provides information on the importance and applicability of the field of neuroimmunology Describes subjects that have shown significant recent developments Introduces a whole new dimension to neuroimmunology by discussing Epigenetic Immunoregulation Investigates the mechanisms and functions of the Neuroimmune Regulatory Supersystem Promotes translational research in the field of neuroimmune biology Covers challenges, such as dealing with problems of e.g., hypothalamic regulation of immune functions, interrelationships of stress and disease, epigenetic immunoregulation, neuroprotection, and neuroimmune regulation in pregnancy.

New Insights to Neuroimmune Biology investigates the mechanisms that and functions of the Neuroimmune Regulatory Supersystem. Covering molecular regulation of cytokines in brain astrocytes, immunoregulation by the sympathetic nervous system, circadian regulation of immune reactions, antigen recognition by the CNS, the modulation of the immune response by head injury, neurogenic inflammation, the role of tachykinins in asthma and allergic disease, defence and defeat reactions, cytokines, behavior and affective disorders, increased activity of type 1 helper T cell functions after reward stimulation. This book has relevance to the entire scientific community in Biology, Medicine and Veterinary medicine as it discusses molecular, cellular, organic and systemic aspects as well as the physological, pathophysiological and behavioral mechnisms which are involved in Neuroimmiune Biology.

Emotion is a universal language understood by all cultures. It is an integral part of our spoken and written language, our art, and our music. Various emotions enable us to respond quickly and appropriately to our environment. And stress, in turn, is created when environmental factors pose a potential threat to our safety. Our fast-paced world requires that we cope with stress in a manner that will harness its energy and minimize its potential to produce disease or distress. This book explains how negative emotions are often generated by stressful situations, and explores how both emotions and stress can have an impact on our health and well being.

It is now well recognized that the brain, and especially the hypothalamus, plays an important role in the regulation of immune reactions and inflammation. This book aims to review our current state of knowledge of this important field. Key historical findings are presented, and the reciprocal interactions between the brain and the immune system are examined. Particular emphasis is placed on inflammation, a critical host defense reaction that serves as an effector response for both the adaptive and innate immune systems. Mechanisms implicated in brain defense, as well as in more general host defense, are discussed. The regulatory influences of the brain on inflammatory responses are included with particular reference to the role of the hypothalamus, which is also the main director the hormonal regulation of immune/inflammatory. Gender-related differences in immune responsiveness, circadian modulator of immune responses, and evidence that behavioral conditioning (e.g. reward) of immune responses is possible are used as examples to reinforce the notion that the neuroendocrine system exerts a fundamental and complex regulatory influence on the immune system. * Presents timely issues such as immunological aspects of the blood-brain-barrier and the role of inflammatory mediators in the evolution of strokes and degenerative diseases * Includes analysis of the role of the brain in the adaptive responses to disease * Evaluates the argument that further knowledge of the influence of the brain on the immune system will provide new insights to the pathophysiology infectious and autoimmune diseases

Eine Gesamtdarstellung der funktionellen Organisation und Bedeutung der Hirnrinde muß allgemeine Organisations- und Funktionsprinzipien ei nerseits, und die funktionelle Bedeutung einzelner Hirnrindenfelder ande rerseits berücksichtigen. Als spätester Erwerb in der Phylogenese ist die Hirnrinde praktisch allen Funktionssystemen des Gehirns als oberste Kon trollschleife überlagert und wird mit wachsender Ausschließlichkeit zur wesentlichen Bedingung dieser Funktionen. In diesem Sinne könnte man sagen, daß in ihr der Kosmos, also die Ordnung der Funktionen des Ge hirns, repräsentiert ist. Da die Hirnrinde schließlich für menschliches Ver halten, Denken und Selbstverständnis eine wesentliche Voraussetzung ist, muß eine Behandlung ihrer Funktionen und Leistungen auch diese Berei che der Neurologie, Psychologie und Philosophie miteinbeziehen. Mit die sen verschiedenen Aspekten habe ich mich über viele Jahre wissenschaft lich beschäftigt und habe versucht, sie in dem vorgelegten Buch in einer Ge samtdarstellung zu vereinen. Es ist in der Absicht geschrieben, diesen fas zinierenden Teil der Neurophysiologie all jenen zugänglich zu machen, de nen Zeit und Gelegenheit fehlt, sich selbst einen breiteren Einblick in die Literatur zu verschaffen, aber für deren Arbeit dieses Wissen erforderlich ist. Es ist weiterhin für die geschrieben, die sich in dieses Forschungs- und Wissensgebiet einarbeiten wollen, oder die in Teilgebieten zwar beschlagen, aber zu anderen Aspekten keinen unmittelbaren Zugang haben. Aus die sem Grunde habe ich das Buch auch zunächst in Deutsch geschrieben, um die internationale Literatur auch einem breiteren deutschsprechenden Le serkreis zugänglich zu machen.
