Duke Institute for Brain Sciences - Bilbo, Staci - Ph.D. | Duke Institute for Brain Sciences | Brain Research | Brenda's Whims | Scoop.it
eNews 's insight:

Fascinating stuff: The overarching goal of research in my lab is to understand the mechanisms by which the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems interact, and how these interactions influence behavioral outcomes such as cognition, emotion and addiction. Immune molecules powerfully impact neuroendocrine function, including hormone-behavior interactions, during health and disease. Similarly, alterations in hormones, such as during stress, can powerfully impact immune function or reactivity.
