Neuronal Activity of Histaminergic Tuberomammillary Neurons During Wake–Sleep States in the Mouse
The view that the activity of histaminergic tuberomammillary neurons plays an important role, not in the induction of wakefulness per se, but in the maintenance of the high level of vigilance necessary for cognitive processes is supported.
Histaminergic descending inputs to the mesopontine tegmentum and their role in the control of cortical activation and wakefulness in the cat
It is hypothesized that the histaminergic descending afferents in the MPT would promote cortical desynchronization and W, at least partially, via activation of H1 receptors situated on cholinergic neurons and that the interactions between Histaminergic and cholin allergic neurons constitute an important circuit in cortical activation during W.
