Interaction of Neurotransmitters and Neurochemicals with Lymphocytes, including the Endocannabinoid System

Neurotransmitters and neurochemicals can act on lymphocytes by binding to receptors expressed by lymphocytes. This review describes lymphocyte expression of receptors for a selection of neurotransmitters and neurochemicals, the anatomical locations where lymphocytes can interact with neurotransmitters, and the effects of the neurotransmitters on lymphocyte function. Implications for health and

New Study on the Endocannabinoid System and Stroke

Stroke is an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Development of novel neuroprotectants is of paramount importance. This review, on the endocannabinoid system and stroke, seeks to summarize the recent evidence for the role of the endocannabinoid signaling system in stroke pathophysiology, as well as the evidence from preclinicalRead

The Endocannabinoid System and the Gut

“The brain and the gut speak the same language” (1) Ethan Russo, MD, Renown Cannabinoid Scientist The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of receptors and enzymes that are spread throughout the body. This system can interact with one’s own cannabinoids (endogenous or endocannabinoids) because of substances found in nature
