John Fahey collaborated with Norman Cousins and many other colleagues at the University of California, Los Angeles, who were key to the establishment and development of the field of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) research. PNI, which explores the interactions between the immune system, the mind (thoughts, responses, and behaviors), and the brain (via the central nervous system), has as its ultimate goal the improvement of human health through the better understanding of these interactions. In this commentary, John Fahey's early contributions to PNI research, especially in the areas of cell-mediated immunity, immune system activation, and inflammation, will be reviewed, followed by descriptions of some more recent work by others associated with the UCLA Cousins Center for PNI that illustrate John's ongoing legacy in this expanding field.
