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

This book provides a lucid summary of behavioral, neural and endocrine regulation of immune responses and of the effects of immune system activity on neural and endocrine functions and behavior. The underlying premise is that the brain and immune system represent a single, integrated system of defense. The discussion includes such topics and stress induced modulation of innate resistance and adaptive immunity in influenza viral infections.

Since neural-immune interaction was recognized as a discipline in the late 1970s, there has been mushrooming growth in this field of research. This book covers the major areas of interest and current research in the biology of neuroimmunomodulation: The brain and the immune system communicate with each other by sharing signal molecules and receptor mechanisms. The topics of research devoted to the interaction between the two systems can essentially be itemized as follows: 1. How the brain modulates the immunity by controlling the endocrine system and the innervations on the immunological organs. 2. How the immune system signals the brain and thereby modulates the activities of the neural and endocrine systems. 3. How and to what extent these bidirectional interactions contribute to the physiology and pathology of the organisms. In this book these interactions are analyzed at all levels. Consequently, research in this field incorporates a variety of disciplines including neurophysiology, endocrinology, immunology, anatomy, biochemistry, pharmacology and clinical medicine. The rate of advancement has also been greatly accelerated by newly refined modern substances working in neural, endocrine and immune tissues.
