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… Expand
Cognitive domains affected by histamine H1-antagonism in humans: A literature review
TLDR
It was concluded that both the complexity of the task as well as the demand for information processing speed determines the sensitivity to the effects of central H(1)-antagonism. Expand
The Neglected Role of Histamine in Alzheimer’s Disease
TLDR
This review focuses on the role of histamine and its receptors in the treatment of AD, and it is hoped that histamine could be an effective therapeutic factor in the Treatment of AD. Expand
The histaminergic network in the brain: basic organization and role in disease
TLDR
This Review explores the possible roles of brain histamine in the mechanisms underlying multiple sclerosis and experimental autoimmune encephalitis. Expand
Histaminergic Modulation of Recognition Memory
TLDR
In this chapter, the effects of histamine and its related compounds on learning and memory are reviewed with particular attention to the findings obtained from experiments carried out using novel object recognition or social recognition paradigms. Expand
The role of cortical and hypothalamic histamine‐3 receptors in the modulation of central histamine neurotransmission: an in vivo electrophysiology and microdialysis study
TLDR
It can be concluded that brain H3 receptors, and especially those expressed in the PFC, play an important role in the autoregulation of histamine neurotransmission in the rat brain. Expand
In vivo pharmacological profile of S 38093, a novel histamine H3 receptor inverse agonist
TLDR
Data indicate that S 38093, a novel H3 inverse agonist, displays cognition enhancing at low doses and arousal properties at higher doses in rodents. Expand
Histaminergic modulation of acetylcholine-induced &ggr; oscillations in rat hippocampus
TLDR
It is concluded that acetylcholine can cause histamine release from histaminergic fibers and thereby can influence attentional states by augmenting &ggr; and thereby might contribute to the previously described enhancement of working memory. Expand
H1-histamine receptors in the amygdala are involved in emotional memory but do not mediate anxiety-related behaviors in mice submitted to EPM testing
TLDR
The results suggest that the H(1) receptors in the amygdala are not implicated in anxiety-like behaviors but are involved in emotional states induced by the T1/T2 EPM protocol in mice. Expand
Histamine H3 and H4 receptors as novel drug targets
TLDR
This review focuses on the pharmacology of selected promising indications and the rationales for the application of H3R and H4R ligands, the newest identified member of the histamine receptor family. Expand
Additive effects of a cholinesterase inhibitor and a histamine inverse agonist on scopolamine deficits in humans
TLDR
Exploratory analyses provide evidence for cognitive improvement through inverse agonism of the H3 histamine receptor and for cooperation between human cholinergic and histaminergic neurotransmitter systems. Expand

Histamine in the brain: beyond sleep and memory.
TLDR
Some of the latest findings that suggest functional roles for the interplay between histamine and other neurotransmitter systems, and to propose novel interactions as physiological substrates that may partially underlie some of the behavioral changes observed following manipulation of the histaminergic system are summarized. Expand
Central histaminergic system and cognition
TLDR
The possible relevance of histamine in disorders such as age-related memory deficits, Alzheimer's disease and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder is worth of consideration, and awaits validation with clinical trials that will prove the beneficial effects of histaminergic drugs in the treatment of these diseases. Expand
Hippocampal histamine receptors: Possible role on the mechanisms of memory in the rat, II
TLDR
Findings confirm the previous findings about the inhibitory effect of histamine on the hippocampal retrieval mechanisms and give further support to the hypothesis that HA acts on the memory processes in the hippocampusal formation, by activation of H1-histamine receptors. Expand
Hippocampus and learning: possible role of histamine receptors.
TLDR
Results suggest that histamine in hippocampus may be exerting a modulatory control on retrieval processes of memory in response to an active avoidance response. Expand
Histamine and its receptors
TLDR
The discovery of nonimidazole derivatives such as brain‐penetrating H3 antagonists has provided drugs that are in early‐phase clinical trials, possibly for application in obesity, and a variety of central nervous system disorders, such as memory, learning deficits and epilepsy. Expand
Histaminergic systems of the limbic complex on learning and motivation
TLDR
Data suggest a modulating role for histamine in learning and motivation/emotionality processes in the rat brain and suggest that histamine sensitive sites in hippocampus and the nucleus accumbens have a role in these processes. Expand
Histamine H1 Receptor Antagonists Produce Increases in Extracellular Acetylcholine in Rat Frontal Cortex and Hippocampus
TLDR
The data suggest that cortical and hippocampal levels of ACh can be effectively modulated by systemic treatment with histamine H1 antagonists, and may suggest that some histaminergic receptors exert an inhibitory influence over central ACh levels. Expand
Histamine as a transmitter in brain.
TLDR
Lesion studies indicate that histamine-containing neurones constitute an ascending bundle arising from the brain-stem, passing through the lateral hypothalamus, and projecting diffusely into the whole telencephalon, suggesting that histaminergic neurones might be involved, like the monoaminergic ones, in the control of states of wakefulness and sleep.

Histaminergic neurons facilitate social memory in rats
TLDR
It is concluded that histamine released from histaminergic neurons facilitates short-term memory. Expand
The activation of histamine-sensitive sites of the ventral hippocampus modulates the consolidation of a learned active avoidance response in rats
TLDR
Evaluating if histaminergic neuron circuits have participation on the consolidation processes of the conditioned avoiding response showed that histamine treatment interfered with the consolidation of the avoiding response, affecting latency and the memory efficiency, which supports the concept that Histamine neurotransmission modulates learning and memory by affecting selectively the three stages of learning.
