Abstract

The development of psychoneuroimmunology has changed our view of the immune system, which has been thought of as an autonomous system within the organism. Results from psychoneuroimmunology have brought us to the conclusion that the immune system interacts with the neural as well as the endocrine system. Therefore, the immune system is now understood as being an integrative part of the organism acting on other systems and being influenced by them.
