References[edit]

I have attempted to more fully reference the article, and to provide a little more explanation Can we remove the lack ofreference citation yet?

John D. Croft 05:21, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, John D. Croft: the references help. We still have some way to go on the article as a whole: the mid-section of this article is still a mess of incomplete sentences. I suspect that the original author simply copy-and-pasted some presentation slides in the first place. I did some cleanup on the early parts some time ago and stopped where I did because I didn't feel expert enough in the subject area to be able to give these sentence fragments the proper context. We still need an expert to go through and do that. Sullivan.t.j 11:44, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
I believe what's needed are in-line references using the <ref> tag rather than a list of citations at the bottom of article. In other words, as you summarize what's written elsewhere you would also reference it using <ref> so that people can see the orignal source for each item in the article.

So far, so good[edit]

I helped out a little, copyediting the prose that was already there, and individually marking the remaining things that are still slides. —Długosz 04:31, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

I think we only need one section marking it as a list, as I am sure the multiple repetitions are redundant. I have kept one reference, and deleted the others. John D. Croft 00:43, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Degree in Psychoneuroimmunology[edit]

What universities offer a degree in Psychoneuroimmunology? Would such a degree be a Doctor of Medicine degree or a Doctor of Philosophy? Thanks, CBHA (talk) 21:45, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

I'll ask this at the Reference desk. CBHA (talk) 19:09, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
It wouldn't be a degree in medicine, because it's not medicine. It's a health scam and a pseudoscience. Of course, the zealots who are watching this article will never allow the truth to be revealed in a Wikipedia article, so you'd never know it by reading this piece of junk. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.126.229.138 (talk) 06:33, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Actually it is a specialised research area of neuroscience, which receives funding from government medical/science bodies just like other legitamate areas of scientific research.; it is most definitely not pseudoscience. The immune system, most definitely interacts with the brain; hence why people feel fatigued, less able to concentrate, low mood, when they have the flu or chest infection and is partly why the elderly get confused when they have a chest infection, UTI etc; the confusion seen in the elderly is caused by cytokines released by the immune reaction, affecting brain chemistry, as well as the fever if a fever is present.Literaturegeek | T@1k? 21:14, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

it is better to know the reason of thisbut it is better to understand the true essence of life[edit]

Robert Adler's last name was spelled 'Ader' in every instance. I fixed it. Leaves me wondering how scholarly this article actually is. Yogaia (talk) 04:42, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

?This is odd. His actual name is indeed Robert Ader. Why on earth would you 'fix it'? At any rate it seems that someone helpful has switched it back! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.67.191.5 (talk) 18:00, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Room for Improvement[edit]

Noticed this article could use some pictures, and some filling in on the pages who's links turn red. Other than that, pretty good. --Cypridophobia (talk) 03:37, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Same or different?[edit]

Are we talking about the field of immunopsychiatry or not? Viriditas (talk) 01:09, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
