Neurotransmitters link the nervous system to immune responses associated with inflammation and poststroke infections. Our immune and nervous systems influence each other, both locally and at a distance (1–4). Locally, immune responses in the central nervous system (CNS) include activation of resident glia cells and macrophages (3–6), and infiltration of circulating immune cells (5). Many responses rely on cytokines secreted by immune cells for communicating not only to immune cells but also to… 
Molecular Mechanisms of Neuroimmune Crosstalk in the Pathogenesis of Stroke
TLDR
This review discusses the complex immunological and physiological interactions that occur after stroke with a focus on how the peripheral immune system and CNS communicate to regulate post-stroke brain homeostasis and how therapeutic manipulation of peripheral systems may provide new mechanisms to treat stroke injury.
The immunology of acute stroke
TLDR
The multifaceted role of the immune system in the pathophysiology of acute stroke is discussed, with increased incidence of infections observed after acute stroke, and might result from activation of long-distance feedback loops between the CNS and peripheral immune organs.
The Regulation Effect of α7nAChRs and M1AChRs on Inflammation and Immunity in Sepsis
TLDR
Correcting the neuroinflammation of the MVZ, hypothalamus, and forebrain induced by sepsis not only leads to their dysfunctions but also underlies the regulatory dysfunction on systemic inflammation and immunity.
Immunomodulatory Therapeutic Strategies in Stroke
TLDR
The immune mechanisms of various therapeutic strategies are discussed, surveying published data and discussing more theoretical mechanisms of action that have yet to be exploited, to reduce longer-term sequelae by focusing on adaptive immunity.
Sensing the world and its dangers: An evolutionary perspective in neuroimmunology
TLDR
This review brings a phylogenetic perspective of the nervous and immune systems in the context of danger detection and advocates for the use of non-model organisms to diversify the field of neuroimmunology.
Friend or foe: the dichotomous impact of T cells on neuro-de/re-generation during aging
TLDR
Immunotherapeutics including vaccination and “protective autoimmunity” provide promising means to rejuvenate neuro-inflammatory disorders and repair CNS acute injury and chronic neuro-degeneration, via the “thymus-inflammaging-neurodegenerations axis”.
Antigen Presentation After Stroke
TLDR
Any potential brain protective effect of stroke-induced immunodepression by attenuating or preventing lymphocyte-mediated brain damage is confounded by stroke severity and an increased incidence of infections.
Dynamics of T cell responses after stroke.
Impact of aging immune system on neurodegeneration and potential immunotherapies
Autonomic Neural Regulation of the Immune System: Implications for Hypertension and Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
The main theme is that dysregulation of the autonomic system enhances the inflammatory response of the innate and adaptive immune systems leading to the initiation or acceleration of pathological processes and worsening of cardiovascular risks.

Acetylcholine-Synthesizing T Cells Relay Neural Signals in a Vagus Nerve Circuit
TLDR
This work has identified an acetylcholine-producing, memory phenotype T cell population in mice that is integral to the inflammatory reflex, and action potentials originating in the vagus nerve regulate T cells, which in turn produce the neurotransmitters required to control innate immune responses.
Functional Innervation of Hepatic iNKT Cells Is Immunosuppressive Following Stroke
TLDR
A molecular mechanism that leads to immunosuppression after stroke is identified and an attractive potential therapeutic alternative to antibiotics is suggested, namely, immunomodulation of iNKT cells to prevent stroke-associated infections.
Astrocyte-Derived MCP-1 Mediates Neuroprotective Effects of Noradrenaline
TLDR
Findings indicate that the neuroprotective effects of NA are mediated, at least in part, by induction and release of astrocyte MCP-1.
Functional requirement for class I MHC in CNS development and plasticity.
TLDR
An important role for class I MHC molecules in the activity-dependent remodeling and plasticity of connections in the developing and mature mammalian central nervous system (CNS) is demonstrated.
Infection After Acute Ischemic Stroke: A Manifestation of Brain-Induced Immunodepression
TLDR
The appearance of infection in patients with acute stroke obeys in part to immunological mechanisms triggered by acute brain injury, and it is likely that this immunological response represents an adaptive mechanism to brain ischemia.
Regulating inflammation by glucocorticoids
TLDR
The inflammatory process itself can be thought of as a ‘guide’ to the activation of the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis, which thus establishes a � ‘feedback’ circuit that begins early after initiation of the inflammatory process.
Cytokines and their role in depression.
TLDR
The cytokines that mediate the inflammatory process, the interleukins and the interferons, and the interaction of cytokines with serotonin as causative factors in the role of depression are reviewed.
