Zant JC, Rozov S, Wigren HK, Panula P, Porkka-Heiskanen T (2012) Histamine release in the basal forebrain mediates cortical activation through cholinergic neurons. J Neurosci 32(38):13244-13254. doi: 10.1523/JNEUROSCI.5933-11.2012
Summary: The basal forebrain modulates many functions, among them the regulation of wakefulness and cortical arousal. Previous data has linked increases in histaminergic transmission to increases in wakefulness. In order to further investigate various facets of this system, the authors injected 230 ng of 192-IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01) into the horizontal diagonal band of Broca/substantia innominata/magnocellular preoptic area of rats. While control animals displayed several changes on administration of exogenous histamine, the lesioned animals had none of these changes.
