Previous research has demonstrated that the serotonin uptake blocker, zimeldine, reduced voluntary ethanol consumption in rats and humans. It has been suggested that zimeldine interfered with the processes that mediate the reinforcement derived from ethanol ingestion. However, there are considerable data which suggest that serotonergic pharmacological agents may produce a ...

Little is known about the physiological mechanisms that control normal drinking and, in particular, drinking around mealtime. This problem has recently been penetrated by experiments evaluating a role for histamine in drinking elicited by eating. This work supports the hypothesis of a preabsorptive, pregastric, vagally-mediated, histaminergic component of drinking elicited ...
