Values represent the percentages of mice (n=6) showing negative effects in the traction test 30,60 and 90 min after treatment with distilled water (10 ml/kg), extract/ fractions 50 and 100 mg/kg) or diazepam (0.25 mg/kg). Data presented as mean ± SEM (n=6) *P\0.05 and** P\0.01, both compared with controls.
