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… Expand
Five Questions about Viral Trafficking in Neurons
TLDR
This work focuses on neurons, despite the other cellular complexity, because neurons provide direct avenues for viral infection, and recognition that viral infection follows nerve pathways enabled the development of viruses for neuronal circuit tracing. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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”. Expand
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. Expand
Dynamics of T cell responses after stroke.
TLDR
There is increasing scope to modulate the T cell response after stroke through communication with the systemic immune system via neural and hormonal pathways and the role of antigen-specific T cell responses requires further investigation. Expand
Impact of aging immune system on neurodegeneration and potential immunotherapies
TLDR
Immunotherapeutics including modulation of inflammation, vaccination, cellular immune therapies and “protective autoimmunity” provide promising approaches to rejuvenate neuroinflammatory disorders and repair brain injury. Expand
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. Expand
Impaired CD8 T cell antiviral immunity following acute spinal cord injury
TLDR
It is shown that mice with mid-thoracic SCI have impaired CD8 T cell function during the acute stage of injury, indicating that impaired antiviral responses occur rapidly following SCI and is not dependent on injury level. Expand

Astrocytes are active players in cerebral innate immunity.
TLDR
Evidence is emerging that the most abundant glial cell population of the CNS, the astrocyte, participates in the local innate immune response triggered by a variety of insults. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
TNF-α transgenic and knockout models of CNS inflammation and degeneration
TLDR
It is established that both soluble and transmembrane molecular forms of TNF-alpha can play critical roles in vivo in the pathogenesis of CNS inflammation and demyelination, and TNF -alpha transgenic and mutant mice are validated as important models for the further study of related human CNS diseases. Expand
The Classical Complement Cascade Mediates CNS Synapse Elimination
TLDR
It is shown that C1q, the initiating protein in the classical complement cascade, is expressed by postnatal neurons in response to immature astrocytes and is localized to synapses throughout the postnatal CNS and retina, supporting a model in which unwanted synapses are tagged by complement for elimination and suggesting that complement-mediated synapse elimination may become aberrantly reactivated in neurodegenerative disease.

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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
