Learning refers to the process by which brain acquires new information about the events occurring in the surroundings and recalling of information is referred to as memory. Memory comprises of registration, consolidation and retrieval. Now a days a prevalence of neurodegenerative disorders is increasing day by days. Beta vulgaris l. (beet) is the abundantly available plant in indian subcontinent, the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory & hepatoprotective potential of Beta vulgaris l. Has been established but nootropic potential of the plant has not been explored the present study is designed to evaluate the nootropic potential of Beta vulgaris l. Roots extract. In this study hydroalcoholic extract of Beta vulgaris l. Roots was evaluated for nootropic potential by using morris water maze model. The present study has been designed to investigate the effect of hydroalcoholic extract of Beta vulgaris l. Roots in high fat diet induced experimental amnesia in mice. The mice were divided into groups i.e control group, normal saline treated group, high fat diet treated group, high fat diet + metrifonate treated group, high fat diet + piracetam treated group & high fat diet + beat root 250,500,1000 mg/kg treated groups. On analysis of results it was found that the extract treated animals showed increased escape latency time spent in search of missing platform in day 5 in morris water maze. This suggests that hydroalcoholic extract of beta vulgaris l. Roots shows significant nootropic activity.
