Abstract

Psychoneuroimmunology is an exciting, complex field that elucidates interactions among the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. The contribution of psychosocial factors and behavioral processes to these interactions has been the focus of numerous studies designed to investigate the intricate pathways that are involved in the 'mind-body connection.' In addition, the effects of this connection on the development and progression of various disease conditions are of considerable interest. Although efforts have been made to identify the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying these relationships, the impact of genetic makeup on the communication among these systems has yet to be fully realized. The development of sophisticated genetic analytical methods and gene mapping techniques now provide the 'tools' to determine the influence of genetics on behavior - neuroendocrine-immune interactions - an area of study that may represent the next frontier in psycheneuroimmunology.
