The different faces of sickness

Together with Jennifer Hundt (Lübeck), Tanja Lange (Lübeck), Harald Engler (Essen), Julie Lasselin (Stockholm) and Binka Karshikoff (Stockholm), Lena Rademacher from the Social Neuroscience Lab published an new Frontiers Research Topic which now is open for submissions.

The Research Topic focuses on immune-driven sickness behavior and its social and communicative side. Articles that either highlight these specific aspects or expand on these in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic are welcome. As it is assumed that interactions between the immune system, the brain and the mentioned psychological processes play an important role in the development and maintenance of neuropsychiatric conditions such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse or fatigue, contributions with such a clinical focus are of particular interest.
