The final neurotransmitter upon which we will focus here is histamine. Like serotonin and the catechola-mines, histamine is a biologically active amine derived from amino acid precursors.

Histamine, although heavily involved in the regulation of allergic and inflammatory reactions, has been found to be a neurotransmitter that is involved in a wide variety of behavioral processes.
