I sincerely congratulate Dr. Korneva’s 85 th anniversary. It was my great honor to be invited to contribute to this journal. It was just 20 years ago when I made a conversation with Dr. Korneva in Japan in 1994, who was one of the pioneers in neuroimmunomodulation study in the world. Then I was invited to visit St. Petersburg in 1998 during International Congress of Pathophysiology held in Lahti, Finland. According to her invitation I visited St. Petersburg for the first time to attend International Conference on «Mechanisms of Functioning of Visceral Systems» dedicated to academician Ivan Pavlov’s 150-anniversary. Since that time I visited St. Petersburg many times as well as other cities in Russia such as Moscow, Volgograd and Ekaterinburg. In this short chapter to appreciate Dr. Korneva s sincere kindness, I would like to describe wonderful memories with Dr. Korneva in Russia.
