Neuroimunology is a field which combines neuroscience and immunology. The interaction between nervous system and immune system can be described by Neuroimmunology. Immune cells usually release biochemicals to neutralize foreign particles and signal other components of the immune system to react. When the immune system attacks the body’s own tissue, the nervous system is affected in some of the Autoimmune diseases. Neuroimmunlogical disorders namely Multiple Sclerosis, Myasthenia Gravis, and acute inflammatory polyneuropathy (Guillain-Barré syndrome), are autoimmune and may be caused due to disorders of immunoregulation. HIV-associated dementia is caused by neuronal damage by the HIV virus. Few autoimmune diseases are mediated by autoantibodies. Paraneoplastic syndromes are also caused by autoimmunity and are associated with cancer, not by direct invasion or tumors. Neuroglial cells participate in immune responses within the central nervous system.
