Mind, Immunity and Health : The Science of Psychoneuroimmunology Paperback
by Philip Evans, etc., Frank Hucklebridge, Angela (all of the University of Westminster Psychophysiology and Stress Research Group) Clow
Part of the Key texts in the psychology of health & illness series
There is a growing consensus that the mind can affect the immune system and over the past decade a new field - known as psychoneuroimmunology or PNI for short - has established itself to investigate the effects of the mind upon the immune system and vice versa.
The authors of this exciting new area of research in the field of health psychology provide a comprehensive and detailed account informed by the latest research.
Topics covered are stress and immunity, depression and immunity and assessment of the evidence that PNI effects are directly related to health.
