Neuroinflammatory biomarkers associated with child mental health in pandemic context

Neuroinflammatory biomarkers associated with child mental health in pandemic context

Studies show that the immune system is involved in various mental and physical health problems and show that immunological changes contribute to social, neurocognitive and behavioral factors. Although rare, some studies have shown that specific psychological interventions are associated with improvements in immune system functions. It is, however, important to conduct further studies to elucidate the molecular mechanisms by which psychological intervention exerts beneficial and lasting effects on the immune system and physical well-being.

In this project (inserted in the project ProChild CoAction Against COVID), it is intended to identify the neuroinflammatory mechanisms modeled during psychological intervention in children with psychological problems and/or disorders.
