Review Text

An amazing account of psychoneuroimmunology, demonstrating chemical links between nervous, immune and endocrine systems. Peptides, like endorphin, act as internal messengers potentially connecting mind and body in ways hitherto only dreamed of by those at the far reaches of New-Age thought. Yet Pert is a neuroscientist and this is the compelling story of her own research, of skulduggery in scientific and medical innovation, and ultimately of these amazing information chemicals and their potential effects on health and disease.
