OverviewBeginning with a discussion of immune system basics, Introduction to Psychoneuroimmunology explores endocrine-immune modulation, neuro-immune modulation, the relationship between stress, contextual change, and disease, as well as infection, allergy, immune activity and psychopathology, and immune function enhancement. This text provides a sound introduction to the field and will serve as a valuable overview to what is otherwise a complex interdisciplinary subject at the junction of molecular biology, genetics, the neuroscience, immunology, cell biology, endocrinology, pharmacology, biochemistry, and the behavioral sciences.
Audience: Advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in fields concerned with the health sciences. Psychology students would be part of the audience along with students interested in medicine, nursing, public health, health science research, medical social work, and others who may be curious about the scientific rationale for a well integrated approach to healthcare.
