Effects of single and repeated administration of red ginseng total saponins (ROTS) and nootropic drugs were examined on impairment of acquisition induced by single oral administration of 3 g/kg ethanol (EtOH) in a step through test. The inhibitory effect of EtOH on acquisition was significantly reduced following single or repeated RGTS administration. The nootropic drugs, piracetam and N-methyl-D-glucamine, given orally significantly reduced impairment of acquisition induced by EtOH. On the… Expand
Anxiolytic effects of a semipurified constituent of guaraná seeds on rats in the elevated T-maze test.
TLDR
Results show that chronic treatment with PEA produces a panicolytic effect during the ETM test, and that the dopaminergic and the serotonergic neurotransmission systems are involved in this effect. Expand
Effect of Black Ginseng on Memory Improvement in the Amnesic Mice Induced by Scopolamine
TLDR
It is suggested that black ginseng enhances cognitive activity by regulation of cholinergic enzymes and antioxidant systems by regulating the activity of acetylcholinesterase and ChAT in the brain. Expand
Effects of repeated administration of Uncaria hooks on the acquisition and central neuronal activities in ethanol-treated mice.
TLDR
The results suggest that the extracts of Uncaria hooks exert a beneficial effect on ethanol-induced memory impairment, and that the central 5-hydroxytryptaminergic and glutaminergic neuronal systems play an important role in the memory acquisition of UnCaria hooks. Expand
Effect of a nutritive-tonic drink on scopolamine-induced memory impairment in mice.
TLDR
It is suggested that NTD improves scopolamine-induced amnesia, and that this action is attributable to the natural drug extracts in the NTD. Expand
Nootropic and anxiolytic activity of saponins of Albizzia lebbeck leaves
TLDR
The data emanated in the present study suggests involvement of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the nootropic and anxiolytic activity of saponins obtained from Albizzia lebbeck. Expand
Comparison of ginsenosides Rg1 and Rb1 for their effects on improving scopolamine‐induced learning and memory impairment in mice
TLDR
It is demonstrated that multiple administrations of Rg1 and Rb1 are effective in improving memory deficiency induced by scopolamine and the two ginsenosides may act through different mechanisms. Expand
The effects of BR003 on memory and cell proliferation in the dentate gyrus of rat hippocampus.
TLDR
The results suggest that the administration of BR003 not only improves learning and memory but also increases cell proliferation in the dentate gyrus of the rat hippocampus. Expand
Role of Crataegus oxyacantha (Hawthorn) on scopolamine induced memory deficit and monoamine mediated behaviour in rats
Treatment of cognitive disorders is a challenging task in neurology since long time. Crataegus oxyacantha, also known as hawthorn belongs to family Rosaceae grown in colder areas and is one of theExpand
MODIFICATION OF NOOTROPIC ACTIVITY OF ALBIZZIA LEBBECK SAPONINS BY SEROTONERGIC AGENTS
Summary The Objective of present study is to investigate the effect of various serotonergic agents on memory enhancing activity of Albizzia lebbeck. n' butanol soluble fraction of Albizzia LebbeckExpand
Ginseng, the Root of Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer, Protects Ethanol-Induced Gastric Damages in Rat through the Induction of Cytoprotective Heat-Shock Protein 27
TLDR
It is suggested that ginseng has a protective effect against ethanol-induced gastric damages by induction of heat-shock proteins 70 and 27 and significant induction of cytoprotective heat- shock proteins HSP27 and HSP70 was found in theginseng-administrated rats. Expand

Effects of ginseng total saponin on cocaine-induced hyperactivity and conditioned place preference in mice
TLDR
GTS inhibition of the morphine-induced hyperactivity and CPP may be closely related with the inhibition of dopaminergic activation induced by morphine and GTS inhibited the development of postsynaptic DA receptor supersensitivity. Expand
Effects of ginseng total saponin on morphine-induced hyperactivity and conditioned place preference in mice
A single or repeated administration of morphine in mice produced hyperactivity, conditioned place preference (CPP) and postsynaptic dopamine (DA) receptor supersensitivity. The hyperactivity inducedExpand
Effect of ethanol on memory consolidation in mice Antagonism by the imidazobenzodiazepine Ro 15-4513 and decrement by familiarization with the environment
TLDR
Three sets of experiments were carried out with CD1 mice tested in a one-trial inhibitory avoidance task, and ethanol was less effective in impairing memory processes of the experienced subjects, resulting in impaired retention, following posttraining ethanol administration. Expand
중추도파민신경활성에 미치는 뇌기능개선 후보약물의 행동약리학적 연구 ( Behavioral Pharmacological Studies of Nootropic Candidates on the Central Dopaminergic Activity in Rats )
TLDR
The enhanced stereotyped behavior by centrophenoxine, N-methyl-D-glucamine, red ginseng total saponin, panaxatriol(PT), and Rg1 seems to have a similarity to entrophenOxine,N- methyl-D,glucamate in modulating of dopaminergic neuroal activity and also my be useful for the nootropic candidates.

Effects of Crocus sativus L. on the ethanol-induced impairment of passive avoidance performances in mice.
TLDR
It is suggested that CS-extract ameliorates the impairment effects of ethanol on learning and memory processes, and possesses a sedative effect. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the development of a long-lasting cholinergic hypofunction requires at least six months of ethanol administration, and undergoes a remarkable recovery. Expand

TLDR
Although responsiveness to footshock was not affected, preliminary results suggest that the drug exerts its effects on acquisition through an action on visual registration, and it seems that UCB 6215 enhances acquisition through its effect on registration mechanisms. Expand
Effect ofPanax ginseng extract on passive avoidance retention in old rats
Female rats of two groups (6 and 27 months) were tested in the passive avoidance test to investigate the age-dependency of the learning ability. The results showed a significantly better avoidanceExpand
In vivo electrochemical determination of extracellular dopamine in the caudate of freely-moving rats after a low dose of ethanol
TLDR
D dopamine and serotonin/uric acid release from caudate was measured by in vivo voltammetry in freely-moving, unanesthetized rats after administration of a low dose of ethanol, and these neurochemical changes may underlie behavioral responses found after low doses of ethanol. Expand

TLDR
The results support the assumption that the functional activation of cerebral aminergic processes plays a possible role in the mode of action of some typical representatives of nootropic drugs. Expand
