The European Behavioural Pharmacology Society (EBPS) sponsors a biennial workshop to promote scientific exchange and present the latest advances in behavioural neuroscience discovery related to neuropsychiatric disorders and pharmacological interventions. The current special issue of Psychopharmacology arose from an EBPS-sponsored workshop on immune influences on the brain and behaviour held at the University of Sussex in June 2014.This meeting represented, we believe, the first international conference on immunopsychiatry. It brought together leading researchers from the USA, Europe and Israel. Key themes included the following: (1) the role of immune modulators in memory and the progression of neurodegenerative disorders, 2) the contribution of prenatal and perinatal infection and/or inflammation to common mental illnesses and (3) targeting the immune system to treat mental illnesses, including depression, schizophrenia and alcohol dependence. The special issue brings together papers covering a number of these themes.
