This presentation will review current inflammation research and examine the role inflammation plays in physical and mental health and disease. The evolution of inflammation as a key part of the innate immune system will be reviewed and how inflammation contributes to health. Dysregulation of inflammatory processes will be discussed and the contributions of autonomic functioning, stress and depression to inflammatory dysregulation will be examined. The effects of treatments for depression on inflammation will be discussed. The presentation conclude with a discussion of how biofeedback might be used as an intervention for inflammatory dysregulation, particularly heart rate variability biofeedback as a method to increase parasympathetic functioning and lead to autonomic balance.
