Background: Cognitive disorders associated with aging have been successfully managed by African traditional medical practitioners using various plants. This study evaluated the cognitive enhancing potentials of Morinda lucida (L) Rubiaceae and Peltophorum pterocarpum (DC) ex. K Heyne in scopolamine induced amnesic animals. Materials and Methods: The anti-amnesic activity of the ethyl acetate extracts of Morinda lucida and Peltophorum pterocarpum at doses of 4 mg/kg, 6 mg/kg and 8 mg/kg were… Expand

In Vitro Ginsenoside Rg1 promotes the proliferation and differentiation of human dental pulp cells (hDPCs). The proliferative ability of hDPCs in Ginsenoside Rg1 is significantly enhanced (p<0.05),Expand
Potential Herb–Drug Interactions in the Management of Age-Related Cognitive Dysfunction
TLDR
Reviewing the potential interactions between selected bioactive compounds used by seniors for cognitive enhancement and representative drugs commonly prescribed to the middle-aged adults to anticipate and prevent risks arising from their co-administration finds interaction with other drugs affecting the same targets may be anticipated and prevented.

TLDR
The anti-amnestic activities of phenylpropanoids in mice with amnesia induced in vivo by scopolamine are examined and E-p-MCA may ultimately hold significant therapeutic value in alleviating certain memory impairments observed in dementia. Expand
Cognitive-enhancing activity of loganin isolated from Cornus officinalis in scopolamine-induced amnesic mice
TLDR
Oral treatment of loganin significantly ameliorated scopolamine-induced memory deficits showing the formation of long-term and/or short-term spatial memory and indicated that logan in may exert antiamnesic activity in in vivo through acetylcholinesterase inhibition. Expand
Evaluation of Antioxidant and Acetyl Cholinesterase inhibitoryactivity of Peltophorum pterocarpum in Scopolamine treated Rats
To evaluate the antioxidant and Acetyl cholinesterase activity of Methanol extract of Peltophorum pterocarpum (MEPP) in scopolamine treated rats. The methanol extract was subjected for phytochemicalExpand
Cholinesterase inhibitory activity of Morinda lucida
Morinda lucida was found common in recipes given by Traditional Medical Practitioners in South Western Nigeria either as memory enhancer or anti-ageing. The oven dried leaves were extracted with 80%Expand
Effect of rivastigmine on scopolamine-induced memory impairment in rats.
TLDR
The inability of higher doses of the cholinesterase inhibitors to antagonise memory deficits induced by scopolamine may be related to excessive cholinergic stimulation in the central nervous system. Expand
Cholinesterase inhibitors: new roles and therapeutic alternatives.
TLDR
It is postulated that two pools of cholinesterases may be present in brain, the first mainly neuronal and AChE dependent and the second mainly glial and BuE dependent, which show different kinetic properties with regard to regulation of ACh concentration in brain and can be separated with selective inhibitors.

The influence of adenosine A3 receptor agonist: IB-MECA, on scopolamine- and MK-801-induced memory impairment
TLDR
Results indicate that adenosine A3 receptor stimulation may ameliorate spatial memory and long term memory impairments in terms of cholinergic and glutamatergic deficits induced by scopolamine and MK-801, respectively. Expand
Modelling dementia: Effects of scopolamine on memory and attention
TLDR
While some functions were unaffected by the drug and others were impaired at the highest dose, still others were affected in a linear dose-dependent manner (sustained attention; visual contrast sensitivity); these observations are discussed in the context of the "scopolamine model" of AD. Expand
Acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase inhibitory activity of some selected Nigerian medicinal plants
TLDR
A maioria destas plantas sao utilizadas como alimentos ou ingredientes alimentares na Nigeria e podem ser responsaveis pela baixa incidencia da doenca de Alzheimer no pais e desempenhar determinadas funcoes na mediacao daDoenca. Expand
A specific amyloid-β protein assembly in the brain impairs memory
TLDR
It is found that memory deficits in middle-aged Tg2576 mice are caused by the extracellular accumulation of a 56-kDa soluble amyloid-β assembly, which is proposed to be Aβ*56 (Aβ star 56), which may contribute to cognitive deficits associated with Alzheimer's disease. Expand
