  author={D. Dhingra and S. Parshad},
Roots of Plumbago zeylanica have been reported to improve learning and memory of mice, but the effect of plumbagin on learning and memory of mice and the possible mechanisms for its effect on memory have not been explored till date. So the present study was designed to evaluate the effect of plumbagin on learning and memory of Swiss young male albino mice. Plumbagin (4, 8, 16 mg/kg, p.o.) and physostigmine (0.1 mg/kg,i.p.) per se were administered for 15 successive days to separate groups of… Expand
