The First Edition of Psychoneuroimmunology collated the information then available that implicated neural and endocrine processes in the modulation of immunity in an attempt to identify and define a new field of study. This new edition documents the past ten years of research and provides unequivocal evidence of behavior-neural-endocrine-immune interactions.
