Course Description In this course we will examine and discuss some of the multiple interactions among the nervous, immune, and endocrine systems, and the  consequences of these interactions for health and behavior, using both the human and animal literatures. Topics include the role of the immune system in neural circuit formation and function, cognition and emotion, neuroendocrine-immune interactions during stress, and the effects of infection, stress, or toxin exposure during critical life stages on health vs. disease throughout the lifespan. We will consider current events related to COVID19 in these topics as well. The critical role of the immune system in brain development and the potential role of early-life inflammatory events in the etiology of psychopathology (autism, schizophrenia), allergies and autoimmunity, and neurodegenerative conditions (Parkinson's, Alzheimer's) will be highlighted.
