Published since 1959, International Review of Neurobiology is a well-known series appealing to neuroscientists, clinicians, psychologists, physiologists, and pharmacologists. Led by an internationally renowned editorial board, this important serial publishes both eclectic volumes made up of timely reviews and thematic volumes that focus on recent progress in a specific area of neurobiology research. It provides solid scientific basis to our understanding of the associations between the brain and the immune system the importance of these connections. It presents coherent development from cellular and molecular neuroimmune communication to social and health considerations, including psychological intervention. It addresses the theory that there is a neurobiology of the immune system.
