Neuroimmunophilosophy project

The mind, body, and society

The interface between immunology, neuroscience, and philosophy, including its history


  1. Immunoneuropsychology (INP) and the mind-body problem. Does INP have implications for better understanding consciousness and how neurophysiological processes and mind are related?  What are the conceptual/theoretical foundations of INP?
  2. The Immunologic Self. Problems associated with self and personal identity.  Can immunologic perspectives help philosophers better understand the concept of self and, conversely, can philosophers help immunologists in their research.  
  3. Immunoneuropsychology and socio-ethical issues (including Transhumanism). 

The above research projects all require learning about immunology, neuroscience and philosophy (particularly philosophy of mind).
