Bi-directional communication pathways exist between the brain and the cytokine-immune-endocrine systems. The hypothalamic-pituitary axis, the efferent neuronal hypothalamus-autonomic nervous system axis, and the direct drainage of macromolecules from the brain into the blood and the lymphatic system provide a network by which the sleeping/waking brain influence bodily functions.
