CI extract had no effect on motor coordination and muscle power. (a): Effects of CI extract on the motor coordination measured by the latency to fall in the rotarod test in mice. The mouse was pretrained until the latency to fall was greater than 120 sec. (b): Effects of CI extract on the grip strength (muscle power) of mice. The grip strength of forepaws of the mouse was measured by a grip strength meter three times every 2 min and averaged. Mice were pretreated with CI extract and vehicle for 15 min before the tests. No significant difference was found among groups ( = 1.590, P = 0.196 for (a); = 0.897, P = 0.475 for (b), one-way ANOVA). N = 9.
