Description

Psychoneuroimmunology deals with the mutual relationships between the brain and the immune system. For more than 20 years, Prof. Lange has been investigating how sleep and the circadian system regulate the innate and adaptive immune system in healthy subjects and to what extent messenger substances of the immune system influence brain functions. Recent work deals with psychoneuroimmunological aspects in patients with autoimmune diseases, e.g. via which mechanisms chronic inflammatory processes and disorders of the adaptive immune system can lead to sleep changes, fatigue and autonomic dysregulation.
