The interaction between nervous system and immune system can be described by Neuroimmunology. Neuroinflammation may be initiated in response to infection, brain injury, toxic metabolites, or autoimmunity. Immune cells usually release biochemicals to neutralize foreign particles and signal other components of the immune system to react but inï¬‚ammation, which eliminates the foreign particle, can make the central nervous system out of control and cause secondary damage to it since some chemicals are toxic to nerve cells. This usually happens in case of stroke or severe head injury. 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.
