    "Fish are friends, not food"--Bruce
    Remember the cute little blue fish in Captain Nemo who had short term memory loss? Not to mention Fifty First Dates.

    A few years ago, some work in New Zealand showed that people with CP have decreased working memory. Let' see, what were we talking about?

    What was hard to figure is that NMDA activity, the main player in chronic pain, actually increases cognitive performance by its action on other cells, so NMDA could not be responsible for working memory change. Now Witkin at Eli Lilly has found that Histamine(3) receptor impairs cognitive performance. H(3)R is part of the pain process.
