ARTICLE INFO Keywords: Centella asiatica Asiatic acid Acetylcholinesterase Excitatory postsynaptic potential Locomotor activity ABSTRACT The asiatic acid, a triterpenoids isolated from Centella asiatica was used to delineate its inhibitory effect on acetylcholinesterase (AChE) properties, excitatory post synaptic potential (EPSP) and locomotor activity.
It is the second messenger system that can modify the postsynaptic potential of the neurotransmitter, enhancing the potential of the response, inhibiting further release of the NT or terminating the postsynaptic response.
After stability of the recording had been obtained [recording for at least 30 min after mounting and a population field excitatory postsynaptic potential (fEPSP) of constant amplitude], we recorded control responses and applied tetanic stimuli consisting of two separate 1-sec stimulations, each at the test intensity at 100 Hz with the two stimulations separated by 5 sec.
Hussain and colleagues monitored the amplitude of the field excitatory postsynaptic potential (fEPSP), which reflects the intensity of the response of hippocampal neurons to stimulation.
