This chapter presents an overview of the major developments in the study of inflammatory responses to traumatic brain injury (TBI), reviewing the controversial role of inflammatory responses after TBI resulting from clinical and experimental studies. It analyses the interaction of immune-competent cells of the central nervous system with the systemic immune system and discusses the controversy of the protective versus the deleterious consequences of immunoactivation.

Keywords:   traumatic brain injury, inflammatory responses, immune-competent cells, central nervous system, systemic immune system, immunoactivation
