Histamine and serotonin
#Catecholamines are derived from Tyrosine. These amines are neurotransmitters in a sympathetic limb of the autonomic nervous system and in the CNS. Dopamine is involved in motivation, reward, addiction, behavioral reinforcement, and coordination of bodily movement.
#Histamine is derived from Histidine. It mediates arousal and attention, as well as a pro-nflammatory signal released from mast cells in response to allergic reactions or tissue damage.
#Serotonin is derived from Tryptophan. It, along with melatonin is indolamine.
