Yes, there is a connection between the nervous system and inflammation, it is well-documented. What kind of inflammation are you referring to, though? There are many kinds of inflammatory disorders and responses. The paper you referenced is about using Cholinergic agonists to treat a specific type of inflammation, sepsis. It isn't recommending a general treatment for just any kind of inflammation. Can you be more specific about the condition you are wondering about?

You are asking a very board question.
You might want try looking in something like an Annual Review of Pharmacology or Neuroscience or Physiology or Immunology for the past few years. You are likely to find a more recent review article than your reference (13 years old).
Alternatively text books.

So there is not even a basic primer or introductory text or references on the relationship of inflammation and the nervous system?

If you really want example of inflammation. Then just any wound healing or let's say upper respiratory infection.

Then, search, 'immune responses, including inflammation, in the nervous system during a URI'.

Then, search, 'immune responses, including inflammation, in the nervous system during a URI'.

I'm referring to the opposite. For example there is immune responses.. then manipulating something in the nervous system can control it. For example, during allergy when mast cells are being released all over the body. Manipulation of the nervous system like reflexology can tame it enough for say travel time to emergency rooms. This is just an example. Or let's the case of just sore feet with a bit of inflammation. Then perhaps some manipulation of nervous system can tame it? What is the list of accepted modalities.
