What does self-severity mean


Psychoneuroimmunology is the branch of science that deals with the interactions between environmental stimuli, the nervous system and the
Immune system busy.

For a long time it was assumed that the immune system serves to recognize and defend against harmful foreign substances and that it works largely independently. The fact that this is not the case is taken into account by the research direction of psychoneuroimmunology.

Function of the immune system: Eliminating pests
Requirement: their recognition by surface molecules (proteins) the so-called antibodies (anatomical components of the immune system)
The lymph vessels return fluids to the circulatory system.
The other organs of the lymphatic system can be divided into 2 types:
1. Structures that trap “foreign” molecules and particles, e.g. B. spleen, lymph nodes, appendix, tonsils.
2. Structures in which leukocytes develop e.g. B. Bone marrow and thymus

Non-specific defense mechanisms:
has 2 "lines of defense":
 the 1st line of defense (skin and mucous membranes) hinders most
Pathogens from entering the body
 The 2nd line of defense uses killer cells, antibacterial proteins, and triggers inflammatory reactions to fight off pathogens that were able to cross the 1st line of defense.

→ These defense mechanisms are referred to as unspecific, as they are e.g. B. not directed against a specific (certain) bacterial strain. They do not change the way they work and they are innate.
→ The body's unspecific defense mechanism is mainly based on phagocytosis. (i.e .: absorption of invaded germs by certain types of white blood cells) ........
