Neural Regulation of Immunity: Molecular Mechanisms and Clinical Translation

Valentin A Pavlov et al. Nat Neurosci.

Abstract

Studies bridging neuroscience and immunology have identified neural pathways that regulate immunity and inflammation. Recent research using methodological advances in molecular genetics has improved our understanding of the neural control of immunity. Here we outline mechanistic insights, focusing on translational relevance and conceptual developments. We also summarize findings from recent clinical studies of bioelectronic neuromodulation in inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
