Sage (Salvia spp) is reputed in European herbal encyclopaedias to enhance memory, and current memory‐enhancing/anti‐dementia drugs are based on enhancing cholinergic activity by inhibiting cholinesterase. In this study the effects of Salvia lavandulaefolia Vahl. (Spanish sage) essential oil and some of its constituent terpenes on human erythrocyte acetylcholinesterase were examined in‐vitro. The main constituents in the essential oil batch used for analysis of cholinesterase inhibition were… 
Cytotoxic, Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitor and Antioxidant Activity of Nepeta menthoides Boiss & Buhse essential oil
TLDR
In vitro cytotoxic activity of the essential oil evaluated against HT-29 (colon carcinoma), Caco-2 (colorectal adeno-carcinoma), T47D (breast ductal carcinoma) and NIH-3T3 (Swiss mouse embryo fibroblast) cell lines using the MTT method is described.
Chemical characterization and anticholinesterase effects of essential oils derived from Salvia species
TLDR
Investigation of the in vitro anti-cholinesterase effect of essential oils derived from ten Salvia species found that the essential oil of S. pseudeuphratica demonstrated the highest inhibitory activity against AChE and BuChE among the tested Salvia essential oils.
Inhibition of acetylcholinesterase activity by tea tree oil and constituent terpenoids
In vitro inhibition of bovine erythrocyte acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity by tea tree oil was investigated. The main constituents in the tea tree oil batch used for the analysis of AChE
IN VITRO - IN VIVO CORRELATION OF THE ANTIOXIDANT CAPACITY OF SALVIAE AETHEROLEUM ESSENTIAL OIL
TLDR
Evaluating the antioxidant capacity of the essential oil extracted from Salvia officinalis L. from biologic cultures suggested that the main mechanism to prevent neurodegeneration is related to antioxidant properties.
Salvia lavandulaefolia essential oil inhibits cholinesterase in vivo.
TLDR
It appears that S. lavandulaefolia oil, shown to inhibit choline esterase in vitro, also has an in vivo effect and this may help explain its traditional use for ailing memory.
Acetylcholinesterase Inhibition and Antioxidant Activity of Essential Oils from Schinus Areira L. and Schinus Longifolia (Lindl.) Speg
TLDR
The essential oil from S. areira leaves was more active than that of the fruits in both bioassays and the chemical composition of the oils obtained by hydrodistillation was determined by GC-MS.

Anticholinesterase constituents from the leaves of Spondias mombin L. (Anacardiaceae)
TLDR
The isolated cholinesterase inhibitory compounds correlate with the known memory-enhancing property of the plant and thus support one of its uses in ethnomedicine.
Acetylcholinesterase inhibitory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial activities of Salvia tomentosa Mill. essential oil
Chemical composition and bioactivity of essential oil from Salvia tomentosa Mill. natively grown in Bulgaria were investigated. GC-MS analysis identified 60 compounds which represented 98% of the oil
Monoterpenoid extract of sage (Salvia lavandulaefolia) with cholinesterase inhibiting properties improves cognitive performance and mood in healthy adults
TLDR
The results extend previous observations of improved cognitive performance and mood following AChE inhibitory sage extracts and suggest that the ability of well-tolerated terpenoid-containing extracts to beneficially modulate cholinergic function and cognitive performance deserves further attention.

Inhibition of Acetylcholinesterase Activity by Essential Oils of Mentha Species
Inhibition of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity by several species of Mentha oils was investigated. AChE activity was measured by a colorimetric method. Mentha aquatica (water mint) containing
Novel anticholinesterase and antiamnesic activities of dehydroevodiamine, a constituent of Evodia rutaecarpa.
TLDR
The results indicate that DHED has novel anti-cholinesterase and antiamnesic activities and might have therapeutic potential in various disorders including Alzheimer's disease.
EUROPEAN HERBS WITH CHOLINERGIC ACTIVITIES: POTENTIAL IN DEMENTIA THERAPY
TLDR
Of three plants with reputed memory enhancing properties, extracts of sage (Salvia officinalis) inhibited the brain enzyme in a concentration dependant manner, indicating that the active plant constituent(s) may be an as yet unidentified compound(s).
Indirect parasympathomimetic activity of metoclopramide: reversible inhibition of cholinesterases from human central nervous system and blood.
TLDR
The mixed-type MCP inhibition of cholinesterase isoenzymes, because of its non-competitive component, can only partially be overcome by increased concentrations of the cholinergic transmitter acetylcholine (ACh).
