Abstract
Cure of cognitive disorders such as amnesia, attention deficit and Alzheimers disease is still a nightmare in the field of medicine. Nootropic agents such as piracetam, aniracetam and choline esterase inhibitors like Donepezil are being used to improve memory, mood and behavior, but the resulting side effects associated with these agents have made their use limited. The present study was undertaken to assess the potential of Pundi rasayana (PR) as a memory enhancer. The roots of the herb included in the formulation are used by the gondas tribal of Karnataka for various mental ailments. PR (2, 4 and 6 mg/ kg p.o.) was administered for eight successive days to both young and aged mice. β-amyloid, scopolamine, ibotenic acid, CO2 and aging induced amnesia were the experimental models. Basal forebrain lesion induced decrease in cerebral Ach and ChAT activity were assessed, Concentrations of Norepinerphrine, Epinephrine, Dopamine, 5-HT in cerebral cortex, cerebellum, hypothalamus, hippocampus, and corpus striatum of rats and mice were measured by HPLC analysis. PR significantly improved learning and memory in young mice and reversed the amnesia induced by scopolamine, β-amyloid, ibotenic acid, CO2 and natural aging. PR inhibited KCN and Carotid artery ligation induced hypoxia, reversed amnesia, neurodegeneration and produced normalizing action on discrete regions of brain and controlled alterations in neurotransmitter levels due to neurodegeneration. PR might prove to be a useful memory restorative agent in the treatment of dementia seen in elderly.
