Advances in Psychoneuroimmunology, the third volume of the Hans Selye Symposia on Neuroendocrinology and Stress, is the proceedings from an international conference held in Hungary (dates not given) to recognize scientists of Hungarian descent. The first three chapters (by Berczi, G.Jancso, and Berczi, respectively) describe the contributions of Hans Selye, the first modern scientist to recognize the interaction between the neuroendocrine and immune systems; Andor Szentivanyi, the first to discover that allergic reactions are regulated by the central nervous system; and Miklos Jancso, the discoverer of neurogenic inflammation. These are valuable historical overviews of the scientific contributions of these scientists and their colleagues. Particularly interesting and informative are personal accounts of professional and social interactions between the authors of these chapters and these scientists. The chapters contain extensive reference lists to facilitate further exploration of the wide spectrum of scientific contributions made by these individuals and their collaborators. Chapter
