Vagal immune-to-brain communication: a visceral chemosensory pathway

Autonomic Neuroscience : Basic & Clinical

Feb 24, 2001

Lisa E GoehlerL R Watkins

Abstract

The immune system operates as a diffuse sensory system, detecting the presence of specific chemical constituents associated with dangerous micro-organisms, and then signalling the brain. In this way, immunosensation constitutes a chemosensory system. Several submodalities of this sensor...read more

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.

Immunomodulating Agents

Immunomodulating agents are substances that stimulate or suppresse the immune system and may help the body combat againsts cancer, infection, or other diseases. Discover the latest research on immunomodulating agents here.

Microglia And CNS Diseases

Microglia are resident macrophages of the CNS. They play a role in scavenging the CNS for plaques, phagocytosis, and extracellular signaling. Here is the latest research on their role in CNS diseases.

Interstitial Cells

Dendritic Cell Signaling

Dendritic cells are potent antigen-presenting cells that can stimulate resting T cells in the primary immune response. Here is the latest research.


American Thoracic Society: Allergy, Immunology & Inflammation

This feed has been developed in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society for the benefit of its Allergy, Immunology, and Inflammation Assembly. It highlights new and impactful papers on allergy, asthma, genetics, and the pathogenesis of lung diseases.

Lung Epithelial Progenitor Cells

Lung epithelial progenitor cells are controlled by many different signaling molecules and are key in the regeneration of proper lung function. The use of manipulating endogenous lung stem cells to treat lung disorders is an exciting and novel area of research. Discover the latest research on lung epithelial progenitor cells here.

Vagal Control of Feeding

The vagus nerve has afferent and efferent pathways that affect satiation, regulate appetite, and control feeding behavior. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to the vagal control of feeding.

Chemokines & Chemokine Receptors

Chemokines are a subset of cytokines which induce chemotaxis in cells expressing chemokine receptors. Chemokines can be broadly categorized into two functional subgroups, homeostatic (basal expression in lymphoid tissues for surveillance purposes) or inflammatory (released during injury to recruit immune effector cells). Chemokine receptors are G-protein coupled receptors which, upon chemokine binding, induce calcium influx into the cell. Find the latest research on chemokines and chemokine receptors here.

Human Immune Variation: Genetics, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

CSF & Lymphatic System

This feed focuses on Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) and the lymphatic system. Discover the latest papers using imaging techniques to track CSF outflow into the lymphatic system in animal models.

Human Immune Variation: Genetic, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Mast Cells in Allergy

Mast cells are key components involved in allergic reactions. They release chemical mediators that are responsible for the clinical symptoms of an allergic reaction. These chemical mediators include histamine, cytokines, leukotrienes and many others. Discover the latest research on mast cells in allergy here.

Hypothalamus & Food Intake

Hypothalamus is as a signaling integratory center in a way that detection of increased levels of nutrients result in food intake inhibition through changes in the expression of anorexigenic and orexigenic neuropeptides. Here is the latest research on the hypothalamus and food intake.

Innate Immunity in Lower Organisms

Many components of the mammalian innate immune system have homologs in lower organisms, such as invertebrates. Discover the latest research on Innate Immunity in Lower Organisms here.

Neuronal Cell Types

There are diverse ranges of neurons, which are defined by their structural, functional, connectional and molecular properties. For example, some type of neurons includes sensory, sympathetic, and motor neurons. Discover the latest research on neuronal cell types here.

Lymphoid Neoplasms

Lymphoid neoplasms are derived from cells that frequently have features that recapitulate stages of normal b-, t-, and nk-cell differentiation and function. Lymphoid neoplasms include the following morphologic types: follicular center cell, lymphoblast (lymphocytic), immunoblast, plasma cell, and large granular lymphocyte (lgl). Here is the latest research on lymphoid neoplasms.
