IBSN: 9781853434877 Categories: ,


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 by Philip Evans, Frank Hucklebridge and Angela Clow are stress and immunity, depression and immunity and assessment of the evidence that PNI effects are directly related to health.
