Abstract:
Psychological stressors result in central nervous system modulation of the immune system. The central nervous system and immune system can communicate via neural and hormonal pathways. A dramatic consequence of these pathways is that activation of the central nervous system by stressful experiences can result in altered immune function. Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) is a multidisciplinary field of inquiry about how the mind influences the neuroendocrine and immune systems and ultimately how interactions among these systems impact health and well-being. This overview talk will focus on explaining the neurochemical links between the nervous system and the immune system, describe how stress can alter the immune system, and discuss clinical evidence of the relationship between stress and immunosuppression. Nursing science is one of the disciplines that integrate behavioral, social, and biological processes in understanding various states of health and illness. A better understanding of health and disease states will likely occur with research that examines the mind - body interactions within the PNI framework.
