The present study was carried out to evaluate CNS activity of ethanolic extract of roots of Anacyclus pyrethrum that includes general behavior studies, sedative, muscle relaxant, anxiolytic, nootropic activity and antidepressant studies in rats. The results reveal potential neuropharmacological activity of Anacyclus pyrethrum as nootropic and also having antidepressant property. Further neurochemical investigation can unravel the mechanism of action of plant drug with respect to nootropic and…

Ascorbic acid might prove to be a useful memory-restorative agent in the treatment of dementia seen in elderly individuals and was found to be more potent than piracetam as reflected by the smaller dose, more pronounced effect, and quicker onset of action.

Behavioral despair in mice: a primary screening test for antidepressants.

The mouse procedure is more rapid and less costly than that with rats and is thus more suitable for the primary screening of antidepressant drugs, suggesting that the procedure is selectively sensitive to antidepressant treatments.
