Abstract

The chloroform extract of the dried root of Hoslundia opposita has been evaluated for effects on the central nervous system (CNS). The extract significantly potentiated the phenobarbitone sleeping time in mice and produced a 60% protection against leptazol-induced convulsion. Neuropharmacological screening revealed CNS depression.
