Does Pregnancy Alter the Brain's Immune Function?

Does Pregnancy Alter the Brain's Immune Function? | Brain Immune Interactions | Scoop.it
Recent research published in the November 2017 issue of Brain, Behavior, and Immunity suggests that a woman's immune response in the brain may decrease during pregnancy and the postpartum period. These findings, discussed by the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, might help to establish a connection between the brain's immune function and the anxiety and mood disorders that are common throughout pregnancy and the postpartum period. Previous research has shown that during pregnancy, the response of the body's peripheral immune system (the part of our protective system that does not protect the brain) is suppressed. This is believed to protect the growing fetus from being attacked by the mother's immune system. Most women don't notice any effects from this suppression, though it is interesting to note that those who suffer with autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis or multiple sclerosis might actually experience a temporary lessening of their symptoms at this time.

how the digestive tract talks to the brain - study could help find new treatment options for obesity

how the digestive tract talks to the brain - study could help find new treatment options for obesity | Brain Immune Interactions | Scoop.it

"Schematic representation of lentiviral injection site in a rat NG.. NeuroscienceNews.com image is credited to Krieger et al./Diabetes."


"Summary: A new study looks at how the digestive tract communicates with the brain and could help find new treatment options for obesity. Source: Swiss National Science Foundation. Our eating behaviour is influenced by the way our digestive tract communicates with our brain. If we can achieve a better understanding of the signalling pathways between them, it may help us find new treatments for obesity. We eat because we’re hungry – and for a thousand other reasons too: for pleasure, out of frustration, or because we’re stressed. We’ve known for a long time that the digestive tract and the brain together determine our eating habits. And finding out how they do this is becoming increasingly relevant, given the current spread of overweight, obesity and type-2 diabetes."

5 Signs Of High Emotional Intelligence

5 Signs Of High Emotional Intelligence | Brain Immune Interactions | Scoop.it
 

Emotional intelligence predicts people’s ability to regulate themselves, manage other people, and achieve success. Research shows a link between emotional intelligence and career success. Not everyone is born with it, but unlike IQ, emotional intelligence can be acquired and improved with practice. So, how can we tell if someone’s got it or not? Here are five signs of people with high emotional intelligence. These are qualities that are easy to assess in every day situations.

 

Sign No. 1: They handle criticism without denial, blame, excuses or anxiety.

One of the hallmarks of high emotional intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is a deep understanding of what makes us tick; what angers us, makes us happy, bores and interests us. It’s also means that we can appraise ourselves, faults and all, with great honesty and clarity. So when people with high emotional intelligence make a mistake and get criticized for it, it doesn’t send them into an emotional tailspin. It’s simply a fact to be noted, analyzed and corrected.
