The outdoor air pollution and brain health workshop.
Accumulating evidence suggests that outdoor air pollution may have a significant impact on central nervous system (CNS) health and disease. To address this issue, the National Institute ofExpand

Early-Life Programming of Later-Life Brain and Behavior: A Critical Role for the Immune System
The immune system is well characterized for its critical role in host defense. Far beyond this limited role however, there is mounting evidence for the vital role the immune system plays within theExpand

Neonatal Infection-Induced Memory Impairment after Lipopolysaccharide in Adulthood Is Prevented via Caspase-1 Inhibition
We have reported that neonatal infection leads to memory impairment after an immune challenge in adulthood. Here we explored whether events occurring as a result of early infection alter the responseExpand

The immune system and developmental programming of brain and behavior
The brain, endocrine, and immune systems are inextricably linked. Immune molecules have a powerful impact on neuroendocrine function, including hormone-behavior interactions, during health as well asExpand

Neonatal infection induces memory impairments following an immune challenge in adulthood.
Exposure to infectious agents during early postnatal life often alters glucocorticoid responses to stress and immune outcomes in adulthood. The authors examined whether neonatal infection results inExpand

Short day lengths attenuate the symptoms of infection in Siberian hamsters
Symptoms of infection, such as fever, anorexia and lethargy, are ubiquitous among vertebrates. Rather than nonspecific manifestations of illness, these responses are organized, adaptive strategiesExpand

Environmental enrichment alters glial antigen expression and neuroimmune function in the adult rat hippocampus
Neurogenesis is a well-characterized phenomenon within the dentate gyrus (DG) of the adult hippocampus. Environmental enrichment (EE) in rodents increases neurogenesis, enhances cognition, andExpand

Short day lengths augment stress-induced leukocyte trafficking and stress-induced enhancement of skin immune function
Environmental conditions influence the onset and severity of infection and disease. Stressful conditions during winter may weaken immune function and further compromise survival by means ofExpand
