  • Histamine was intensively studied at the beginning of the 20th century because of its important role in allergic and inflammation processes. In those days it was very difficult that researchers could envisage another impacting function for the imidazolamine in the living systems. Once the imidazolamine was found located in neuron compartment in the brain, increasing evidence supported many regulatory functions including its possible role in memory and learning. The specific participation of… CONTINUE READING
