Abstract: Objective: Ficus carica Linn. (Moraceae) commonly known as the fig plant, a native of Carica in Asia is grown in nearly all tropical and sub-tropical countries. Phytochemical screening of the hexane extract confirmed the presence of flavonoids (quercetin) which have been associated with C.N.S. effects and also claimed to be the responsible C.N.S. active moiety, in recent studies. Hence it was thought worthy to investigate the cognitive effects of hexane extract of Ficus carica leaves… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Report- Ethanolic Ficus carica leaf extract supplementation affects the behavior of male albino mice.

It was observed that oral supplementation of 100mg/ ml solvent/Kg body weight of Ficus carica leaf extract for 2 weeks enhanced neuromuscular co-ordination as they had significantly higher mean speed than control group during elevated plus maze test.

Central nervous system activity of an aqueous acetonic extract of Ficus carica L. in mice

This suggests that Ficus carica L. exerts its CNS depressive effect by modulating the neurotransmitters NE and 5-HT in the brain.

Memory enhancing activity of Lawsonia inermis Linn. leaves against scopolamine induced memory impairment in Swiss albino mice

The findings suggest that, the memory enhancing effect of Lawsonia inermis leaves might be due to enhancement of cholinergic neurotransmission through inhibition of AChE activity and by stabilizing the antioxidant system.

Antiamnesic Potential of Coccinia indica (Linn.) Extract: A Mechanism Based Study

The results indicate that ethanolic extract of Coccinia indica might be a useful as natural source of antiamnesic drug to improve learning and memory deficit associated symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s patients.

Evaluation of Nootropic Activity of Limonia acidissima Against Scopolamine-induced Amnesia in Rats.

The results suggested that the administration of methanolic extract of Limonia acidissima enhances learning and memory in different experimental models and indicates that the extract may be used in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.

Evaluation of nootropic activity of Limonia acidissima against scopolamineinduced amnesia on rats

The results suggested that the administration of methanolic extract of Limonia acidissima enhances learning and memory in different experimental model and reveals nero-protective property of extract.

Nootropic activity of Crataeva nurvala Buch-Ham against scopolamine induced cognitive impairment

The results indicate that ethanolic extract of Crataeva nurvala might be a useful as nootropic agent to delay the onset and reduce the severity of symptoms associated with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Neuroprotective Activity of Crataeva nurvala Buch-Ham Stem Bark against Scopolamine-Induced Cognitive Impairment via Antioxidative Activities in Rats

Results suggest combination of antioxidant and anti-dementia activities may be associated with the neuroprotective effect of Crataeva nurvala extract against scopolamine-induced oxidative stress in rat brain.

Consumption of fig fruits grown in Oman can improve memory, anxiety, and learning skills in a transgenic mice model of Alzheimer's disease

It is suggested that dietary supplementation of figs may be useful for the improvement of cognitive and behavioral deficits in AD.

Therapeutic Effects of Ficus Carica Leaves: A Brief Review

The aim of this review is to go through the current research on the pharmacological effects of fig leaves.

EFFECT OF TINOSPORA CORDIFOLIA ON LEARNING AND MEMORY IN NORMAL AND MEMORY DEFICIT RATS

The histopathologioal examination of hippocampus in cyclosporine treated rats showed neurodegenerative changes which were protected by the Tc, indicating enhancement of learning and memory.

Protective Effect of Flavonoids against Aging- and Lipopolysaccharide-Induced Cognitive Impairment in Mice

The results showed that chronic treatment with flavonoids reverses cognitive deficits in aged and LPS-intoxicated mice which suggests that modulation of cyclooxygenase-2 and inducible nitric synthase by flavonoid may be important in the prevention of memory deficits, one of the symptoms related to AD.

Cognitive-Enhancing Effect of Quercetin in a Rat Model of Parkinson's Disease Induced by 6-Hydroxydopamine

It is suggested that the cognitive-enhancing effect of quercetin occurs partly because of decreased oxidative damage resulting in increased neuron density.

Effects of the novel compound aniracetam (Ro 13-5057) upon impaired learning and memory in rodents

Aniracetam improves cognitive functions which are impaired by different procedure and in different phases of the learning and memory process, and improvements or normalizations of impaired cognitive functions were seen at oral anir acetam doses of 10–100 mg/kg.
