Much evidence from various fields has revealed multiple channels of communication between the brain and the immune system. Among the routes of signal transmission, this review focuses on the roles and mechanisms of neural communication between the two systems. As for the centrifugal neural pathway by which the brain modulates immunity, there are various requirements for the noradrenergic sympathetic innervation of the primary and secondary lymphoid organs. In addition to the presence of beta… CONTINUE READING
