Here is yet another of Springer’s authoritative Major Reference Works – now in its third, updated edition.
The release of these is a huge publishing event in itself, and this handbook on neurochemistry and molecular neurobiology is no exception.
It contains data on multiple immunomodulators, many of which are also the products of hypothalamic brain cell neurosecretion. With contributions from dozens of researchers worldwide, and edited by two leading authorities in the field, this is information you can trust.
Neuroimmunology is one of the most rapidly developing branches of Neurobiology, prompted by novel neurochemical, neuroendocrinological and neurophysiological investigations of the central and peripheral nervous system including neuro-endocrine systems.
Neuroimmunology can be considered an interdisciplinary science that covers relevant aspects of how the peripheral immune system can influence brain physiology and elicit neuro-endocrine immuno-regulatory responses and also how local interactions between immune and neuronal mediators of the brain influence the occurrence and course of neuropathologic diseases.
