GLASER, Department of Molecular Virology, Immunology and Medical Genetics, Comprehensive Cancer Center, Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research, The Ohio State University Medical Center, USA,, has written a personal history of psychoneuroimmunology.


Background: This review (49 references) comes from the world's greatest authority on the connections between the nervous, endocrine and immune systems and our life experience. Abstract: Historically, clinicians have suspected that both major and minor stressful events can have health implications. Observations and case reports link severely stressful life events with a sudden onset or worsening of a variety of illnesses. The immune system was quickly implicated as a means to help explain how stressful life events could produce this relationship. The field of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) is a field of research that deals with the complex interactions between the central nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, and how behaviour and stress can modify these interactions.. This review presents some of the author's papers that represent efforts to study the effects of stress on the immune response. Also included are selected papers that describe how the author's PNI program has evolved; virtually all of this research has been performed in collaboration with Janice Kiecolt-Glaser and others in Glaser's research group.
