Background: Coriandrum sativum L. has been recommended for relief of insomnia in Iranian traditional medicine. However, no pharmacological studies have yet evaluated its sedative effects. The aim of this study was to determine if extracts and essential oil of coriander seeds have sedative-hypnotic activity. Methods: The aqueous or hydro-alcoholic extracts or essential oil of coriander seeds (100, 200, 400 and 600 mg/kg) were intraperitoneally administered to male albino mice, 30 minutes before… Expand
Sedative-Hypnotic Like Effect of the Essential Oil from the Leaves of Myrtus Communis on Mice
TLDR
The essential oil of Myrtus communis possesses dose dependent sedative-hypnotic like activity and CNS depressant activity and the effect of the EO on motor-coordination and muscle relaxation was evaluated. Expand
Hypnotic effect of the essential oil from the leaves of Myrtus communis on mice
TLDR
The EO of M. communis did not produce a hypnotic effect, but it potentiated a hypnotIC effect with significant central nervous system depressant activity. Expand
Sedative effect of central administration of Coriandrum sativum essential oil and its major component linalool in neonatal chicks
TLDR
The results indicate that intracerebroventricular injection of essential oil from Coriandrum sativum seeds induced a sedative effect at 8.6 and 86 μg doses, which may be due to monoterpene linalool, which also induced a similar sedatives effect, and could be considered as a potential therapeutic agent similar to diazepam. Expand
Study of Antidepressant and Sedative-Hypnotic Activity of Hydroalcoholic Extract of Asperugo procumbens L. Aerial Parts in Mice
TLDR
The results of the present study indicate the low antidepressant and good sedative-hypnotic effects of the hydroalcoholic extract of Asperugo procumbens aerial parts in mice and that the central benzodiazepine receptors are involved in the sedative, hypnotic and antidepressant effects of this plant. Expand
Anxiolytic activity of Coriandrum sativum seeds aqueous extract on chronic restraint stressed mice and effect on brain neurotransmitters
TLDR
CSE treatment improved exploratory activity in the animal models of anxiety, and restored monoamines and GABA levels to the respective baseline levels, and reduced excitotoxic levels of glutamate in the hippocampus region. Expand
Hydroalcoholic extract of needles of Pinus eldarica enhances pentobarbital-induced sleep: possible involvement of GABAergic system
TLDR
The present data indicate that P. eldarica potentiated pentobarbital hypnosis without major toxic effect and most probably, the main components responsible for this effect are non-polar agents which are found in NBF of this plant. Expand
Anti-anxiety activity of Coriandrum sativum assessed using different experimental anxiety models
TLDR
Results suggested that extract of C. sativum at 100 and 200 mg/kg dose produced anti-anxiety effects almost similar to diazepam, and at 50 mg/ kg dose did not produce anti-Anxiety activity on any of the paradigm used. Expand
Effect of ethanolic extract of Coriandrum sativum L. on tacrine induced orofacial dyskinesia.
TLDR
The results have demonstrated the protective role of ethanolic extract of Coriandrum sativum L. L against tacrine induced orofacial dyskinesia. Expand
Tanacetum parthenium enhances pentobarbital-induced sleeping behaviors
TLDR
The results suggested that T. parthenium potentiates pentobarbital hypnosis without causing toxic effects, and its effects are mediated by the components present in EAF of this plant. Expand
Hypnotic Effect of Ocimum basilicum on Pentobarbital-Induced Sleep in Mice
TLDR
The present data demonstrated that Ocimum basilicum potentiates sleeping behaviors without any cytotoxicity, and the main component responsible for the hypnotic effects of this plant is most likely a non-polar agent which is found in NBF. Expand

Coriandrum sativum: evaluation of its anxiolytic effect in the elevated plus-maze.
TLDR
Results suggest that the aqueous extract of Coriandrum sativum seed has anxiolytic effect and may have potential sedative and muscle relaxant effects. Expand
Neurobehavioral study of the effect of beta-myrcene on rodents.
TLDR
The data suggest that beta-myrcene has no benzodiazepine-like anxiolytic activity and that an activity on the central nervous system (antidepressive or antipsychotic) is unlikely. Expand
Central effects of citral, myrcene and limonene, constituents of essential oil chemotypes from Lippia alba (Mill.) n.e. Brown.
TLDR
It was shown that citral, limonene and myrcene presented sedative as well as motor relaxant effects and produced a potentiation of the pentobarbital-induced sleeping time in mice, which was more intense in the presence of citral. Expand
Pharmacological profile of apigenin, a flavonoid isolated from Matricaria chamomilla.
TLDR
The present results seem to suggest that the inhibitory activity of apigenin on locomotor behaviour in rats cannot be ascribed to an interaction with GABA(A)-benzodiazepine receptor but to other neurotransmission systems, since it is not blocked by Ro 15-1788. Expand
Hypnotic, anticonvulsant and muscle relaxant effects of Rubus brasiliensis. Involvement of GABA(A)-system.
TLDR
It is strongly suggested that this hexanic fraction contains a benzodiazepine-like principle and may play an important role in the effects of this fraction, in mice. Expand
Hypolipidemic effect of coriander seeds (Coriandrum sativum): mechanism of action
TLDR
The increased activity of plasma LCAT, enhanced hepatic bile acid synthesis and the increased degradation of cholesterol to fecal bile acids and neutral sterols appeared to account for its hypocholesterolemic effect. Expand
Sedative activity of two flavonol glycosides isolated from the flowers of Albizzia julibrissin Durazz.
TLDR
Both compounds 1 and 2 increased pentobarbital-induced sleeping time in dose-dependent manner in mice, and these results support the use of the flowers of this plant as a sedative agent. Expand
Antifungal Activities and Essential Oil Constituents of Some Spices from Pakistan
TLDR
Hydrodistillation of Amomum subulatum, Cinnamomum verum, Coriandrum sativum, Cuminum cyminum, Elettaria cardamommum, Myristica fragrans (Mace), and Myristicas fragran (Nutmeg) purchased from local spice markets yielded essential oils which contained 1,8-cineole and cinnamaldehyde, respectively, as main constituents determined by GC/MS. Expand
Effect of two flavonoid compounds on central nervous system. Analgesic activity.
TLDR
It was suggested that penta-O-ethylquercetin acted mainly peripherally in analgesia experiments such as acetic acid-induced writhings, as pretreatment with naloxone failed to antagonize the analgesic activity of penta. Expand
Possible anxiolytic effects of chrysin, a central benzodiazepine receptor ligand isolated from Passiflora Coerulea
TLDR
The data suggest that chrysin possesses anxiolytic actions without inducing sedation and muscle relaxation, and postulate that this natural monoflavonoid is a partial agonist of the central BDZ receptors. Expand
