Background: Traditional preparation of the leaf of Flemingia stricta (Fabaceae) Roxb., a medicinal plant of the Indian subcontinent, has been used for treatment of different diseases as herbal preparation. Our purpose was to analyze Neuropharmacological effects of different chemical extracts of Flemingia stricta Roxb. as particular form of behavioral inhibition that occurs in response to novel environmental events. Methods: In present study, the anxiogenic activity of crude extracts of Flemingia stricta leaves was determined using standard animal behavioral models, such as hole cross and open field; Sedative property and anxiolytic potential were assessed by conducting thiopental sodium induced sleeping times tests and elevated plus maze test respectively. Results: The crude extracts at both dose (200 and 400mg/kg) exhibited a significant (P<0.05, P<0.01) dose-dependent suppression of motor activity and exploratory activity of mice in both open field and hole cross test. In anxiolytic study, extracts displayed increased percentage of entry into open arm at the dose of 200 and 400mg/kg. Extracts produced a significant (P<0.05, P<0.01) increase in sleeping duration and reduction of onset of sleep compared to sodium thiopental at ...Continue Reading
