Abstract

Treatment with 100 mgykg of Clitoria ternatea aqueous root extract (CTR), for 30 days in neonatal and young adult age groups of rat, significantly increased acetylcholine (ACh) content in their hippocampi as compared to age matched controls.Incr ease in ACh content in their hippocampus may be the neurochemical basis for their improved learning and memory.
