Abstract
Introduction & Aim: Enhancing cholinergic transmission is suggested to improve cognitive functions. We aimed to investigate the effects of galangin, a flavonoid compound that is reported to inhibit acetylcholinesterase enzyme, on mecamylamineinduced spatial memory impairments in rats. Methods: Morris water maze test was used to investigate the spatial memory. Galangin 50 (100 mg/kg) was administered acutely 30 minutes before the impairment of spatial memory by a nicotinic receptor antagonist (mecamylamine injection). Donepezil (1 mg/kg) used as a reference drug. Distance to platform and time spent in escape platform quadrant were recorded and analyzed with Ethovision XT version 9.0 (Noldus, Wageningen, Netherlands). Results were statistically analyzed with oneway ANOVA. Results: Mecamylamine significantly increased the distance to platform and decreased the time spent in the escape platform quadrant compared to control group. Galangin 100, but not 50 mg/kg significantly decreased the distance to platform and increased the time spent in the escape platform quadrant compared to mecamylamine group comparable to donepezil 1 mg/kg. Conclusion: Galangin 100 g/kg may improve memory comparable to donepezil and nicotinic receptors may be involved in this effect.
