This volume brings together investigators working on the clinical problem of neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus, as well as neuroscientists from other disciplines. The presentations provide a current overview and access to a better understanding of cellular events in ischemia, the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axix and hypothalamic pituitary gonadal (HPG) axis changes in systemic inflammation, and the protective and toxic effects of glucocorticoids on the brain. The articles invoke discussion and generate future strategies for diagnosis and therapy.
