Histamine is involved in immune responses and inflammation, helps regulate physiological function in the gut, and acts as a neurotransmitter. In recent years it has increasingly been linked to Tourette syndrome.
Research publications on the role of histamine neurotransmission in Tourette syndrome are listed below. Please also see these articles on our website:
