This volume brings together diverse areas of neuroimmunology and the methodologies so that readers can select those procedures suitable for their own research. Many different methods are in use in this area and this book aims to make the choice easier for the researcher. Comprehensive protocols are included for the study of: the brain-immune system; the neuroimmune system - effects of the brain on the peripheral immune system; neuroimmune effects from substances of abuse (eg cocaine) to hypnosis; measurement of interferons, cytokines, natural killer cells and major histocompatibility complex molecules; immunohistochemistry methods in the brain; and neuropeptides as immunomodulators.
