It's a bit of a mystery. Quite unsettling really. I would suggest a search for Psychoneuroimmunology and move from there. You'll find very interesting material.
And, as the name "Psychoneuroimmunology" implies, it's about a mind/body interaction. I don't think most folks think the Placebo effect is purely
mental, do they? So, the results don't sound that surprising from the titles, but I'll have to read more later
