We investigate the mechanisms by which chronic peripheral inflammation/infection triggers the degeneration of the central nervous system and how various different types of psychosocial stress alter the susceptibility to peripheral infection.  The expression and regulation of pro-inflammatory cytokines is a key focus of our research.
