The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis controls reactions to stress and regulates various body processes such as digestion, the immune system, mood and sexuality, and energy usage. This volume focuses on the role it plays in the immune system and provides substantive experimental and clinical data to support current understanding in the field, and potential applications of this knowledge in the treatment of disease. * Evidence presented in this book suggests that the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems form the Neuroendoimmune Supersystem, which integrates all the biological functions of higher organisms both in health and disease for their entire life cycle. * Contributors include both the scientists who initiated the work on the HPA axis and on the autonomic nervous system, and those who joined the field later.

Highlights: HPA-axis activity is not consistently associated with cognitive functioning in non-depressed older adults. HAP-axis activity is not associated with cognitive functioning in depressed older adults. Cortisol is not likely to be a major factor contributing to poorer cognitive functioning in depressed older adults. Abstract: Inconsistent results are found in the involvement of the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA)-axis in cognitive functioning. This study examined the association between various saliva cortisol measures (the 1-h awakening cortisol, evening cortisol, diurnal change, and cortisol suppression) and cognitive functioning (episodic memory, processing speed, interference control, and working memory). Participants were older adults, between 60 and 93 years with (N=328) and without (N=119) a depressive disorder from the Netherlands Study of Depression in Older adults. No significant associations between cortisol and cognitive functioning were observed in the total sample. Only in non-depressed older adults, higher total cortisol secretion over the first hour after awakening and worse episodic memory, higher cortisol levels at awakening and better working memory, and higher diurnal change and better processing speed were significantly associated. Cortisol was not associated with cognitive functioning in depressed older adults. In older adults, the association between depression and cognitive functioning is likely the consequence of other biological or psychological mechanisms.
