PSYC 8747 - Psychoneuroimmunology


(5 cr.) In this course, students examine the current theory and interdisciplinary (psychological and medical) research associated with psychoneuroimmunology (PNI). Topics include the mind/body interaction, its effects on overall health through modulation of the immune system, and mind/body interventions. Students explore recent advances in medical science that have contributed to the knowledge of biological processes and how the mind can be used as a potent force in modifying the biological mechanisms involved in wellness and illness. (Prerequisite(s): PSYC 6225 or 8226 and PSYC 6748 or 8748.)
