Abstract

Neuroimmune regulation plays a major role in many facets of human health.
In the last 30 years our understanding of this intricate relationship between the brain and immune system has progressed immensely. Pioneering work in the late 1980s and early 1990s began to establish an understanding of the bi-directional communication between these previously considered distinct
systems, and its implications in the regulation of mood and cognition. Since then, significant advances in the field of neuroimmunology have been made, and we now know considerably more about the mechanisms responsible for neuroimmune regulation of health and behavior. In this Frontiers research topic
Neuroinflammation and Behavior, 10 groups of researchers contributed their expertise to discuss the recent knowledge in the field of neuroimmunology, focusing on the neuroinflammatory mechanisms in affective disorders, early life programming of neuroimmune function, as well as neuroimmune interactions in the aging brain and its associated pathologies.
