An emerging literature attests to the ability of psychological stress to alter the inflammatory cytokine environment of the body. While the ability of stress to cause cytokine release is well established, the neural pathways involved in this control have yet to be identified. This study tests the hypothesis that IL-6 neurons of the hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal system (HNS), a neural pathway proposed to secrete IL-6 into the circulation, are activated in response to psychological stress… CONTINUE READING
