ABSTRACT:
The objective of the present study was to investigate the CNS depressant and Anxiolytic activity of the methanolic extract of the whole plant of Celastrus paniculatus Willd. (Family: Celastraceae) in mice as a part of psychopharmacological screening of this plant, using different in vivo experimental models. The effects of the plant extract (200 mg/kg, 400mg/kg and 600 mg/kg) on the central nervous system (CNS) was evaluated for potentiation of phenobarbitone-induced sleeping time in mice. The results revealed that the methanolic extract of Celastrus paniculatus Willd. whole plant has reduced the onset of Phenobarbitone-induced sleeping time in mice and prolonged the duration of sleeping time significantly (p<0.05). In the test studied for the anxiolytic activity of methanolic extract of Celastrus paniculatus Willd. whole plant, using Staircase test model, it was revealed that the extract at doses 200 mg/kg and 400mg/kg reduced the number of rearings and decreased the number of steps ascended significantly (p<0.05). The overall results suggest that the methanolic extract of Celastrus paniculatus Willd. whole plant contains some active principles which may possess significant CNS depressant and anxiolytic activity.
