Ixora coccinea Linn. (Family: Rubiaceae), a small to medium sized hardy shrub is cultivated for ornamental purpose and also it finds place in traditional Indian medicine. The objective of this study was to evaluate the anxiolytic activity of Ixora coccinea ethanolic extract. The methods used for this study are elevated plus maze paradigm test and Hole board test. The ethanolic extract ICEE shows a significant (P<0.01) anxiolytic effect during the elevated plus maze test and the hole board test in a dose dependent manner when compared with the standard dose of diazepam.
