Anatomical and Physiological Connections between the Central Nervous and the Immune Systems (Neuroimmunomodulation)

  • Novera Herbert Spector


Long ago, “Physiology” included embryology, immunology, neurobiology, cell biology, biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology, and many other subjects. Today, at a World Congress of Physiology, one can find few papers on immunology: anatomy is even more remote. Specialization and specialists have separated each of these into separate disciplines and even many sub-disciplines.
