Scientific Evaluation of Brahma Rasayana as a Cognitive Enhancer in D-Galactose Induced Cognitive Impairment in Mice

  title={Scientific Evaluation of Brahma Rasayana as a Cognitive Enhancer in D-Galactose Induced Cognitive Impairment in Mice},
  author={Kasi Sathiyaseelan},
INTRODUCTION:Cognition refers to thinking skills and the intellectual skills that allow a person to perceive, acquire, understand and respond to information. This includes the abilities to pay attention, remember and process information, solve problems, organize and reorganize information, communicate and act upon information.1 The disorders that affect cognition include neurodegenerative disorders, vascular diseases, trauma, toxin, anoxia and infectious processes. Cognitive impairments are…

Critical review of Brahma Rasayana W.S.R to its immunomodulatory activity

The ingredients of Brahma Rasayana formulation are the herbs among all reviewed in the present study found to exhibit immunomodulatory effect of formulation.



The effects of valsartan on cognitive deficits induced by aluminum trichloride and d-galactose in mice

The results indicate that valsartan prevents AlCl3- and d-gal-induced cognitive decline partly to restore cholinergic function and attenuate oxidative damage.

Dopamine and the regulation of cognition and attention

Centella asiatica Attenuates D-Galactose-Induced Cognitive Impairment, Oxidative and Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Mice

Centella asiatica treatment significantly improved behavioral alterations, oxidative damage and mitochondrial enzyme complex activities as compared to contro l (D-galactose), and attenuated enhanced acetylcholine esterase enzyme level in D-Galactose senescence mice.

Role of Ocimum sanctum in the experimental model of Alzheimer’s disease in rats

Ocimum sanctum might be effective in clinical AD by virtue of its cognition enhancement, antidepressant and antianxiety properties, which are the primary needs to be addressed in AD.

Curcumin Improves Amyloid β-Peptide (1-42) Induced Spatial Memory Deficits through BDNF-ERK Signaling Pathway

It is suggested that chronic curcumin ameliorates AD-related cognitive deficits and that upregulated BDNF-ERK signaling in the hippocampus may underlie the cognitive improvement produced byCurcumin.

D. gangeticum appears to be a promising candidate for improving memory and it would be worthwhile to explore the potential of this plant in the management of dementia and Alzheimer disease.

Ginkgo biloba leaf extract improves the cognitive abilities of rats with D-galactose induced dementia

EGB significantly attenuated learning and memory impairment in a dose-dependent manner, while it could decrease the nmber of TUNEL-positive cells, and increase the activity of PKB.

The Mechanism of Memory Enhancement of Acteoside (Verbascoside) in the Senescent Mouse Model Induced by a Combination of d‐gal and AlCl3

The results showed that the latency of step down was shortened in AD model mice and the number of errors decreased after treatment with all doses of acteoside, which support the results obtained previously using the Morris maze test in the same mouse model of senescence, and the use of traditional medicinal herbs containing acteooside for neuroprotection and memory loss.


Hydroalcoholic extract of Areca catechu Linn showed significant protective effect on neurodegeneration and also showed improvement on memory retention activity when compared with β - amyloid induced animals (Group II).
