  • Locomotor balance recovery after unilateral vestibular neurectomy has been found strongly accelerated in the cat when the animals received a postoperative treatment with Ginkgo biloba Extract (EGb 761:50 mg/kg/d, i.p.), a result due to the improvement of plasticity mechanisms involved in vestibular compensation. The aim of this study was to determine which of the two main biochemical components (terpenes vs. flavonoids) contained in the extract was the most active in the recovery process, to… CONTINUE READING
