Abstract

The immune response network is only one of many physiologic adaptive responses to environmental change and there is now substantial evidence that adaptive responses involving the central nervous system have an impact on immune outcome. Effective immune function depends upon a highly mobile population of precursor and effector cells of the lymphoid system. In this review it is proposed that many of the alterations in immunity resulting from CNS activity may be explained in terms of changes in lymphocyte migration patterns in response to endocrine signals, neural signals via neurotransmitter release, or direct contacts between nerves and cells of the immune system.
