Abstract

This study evaluated the effect of hydromethanolic leaf extract of Ocimum gratissimum (HMOG) on visuo-spatial learning and memory in mice. Mice were randomly assigned into four groups of 6 mice each.

The acute oral toxicity (LD50) study and qualitative phytochemical screening were carried out. The body weight of mice was monitored and behavioural indices such as swim latencies, quadrant durations and annulus crossings (annulus acquisition and reversal frequency) were measured using Morris water maze.
