Marcel van de Wouw, Marzia Sichetti, Caitriona M Long-Smith, Nathaniel L Ritz, Gerard M Moloney, Anne-Marie Cusack, Kirsten Berding, Timothy G Dinan, John F Cryan,

There has been a growing recognition of the involvement of the immune system in stress-related disorders. Acute stress leads to the activation of neuroendocrine systems, which in turn orchestrate a large-scale redistribution of innate immune cells, such as monocytes. Even though acute stress/monocyte interactions have been well-characterized in mice, this ... Read more >>
