Effect of Centella asiatica (CA; 150 and 300 mg/kg, PO) on spatial navigation task in intracerebroventricular colchicines- (COL-) injected rats.

The initial acquisition latencies (IALs) on day 13 and retention latencies on days 14 (1st RL) and 21 (2nd RL) following colchicine injection were observed in Morris water maze. Values are mean SEM; as compared to artificial cerebrospinal fluid- (ACSF) injected group; as compared to colchicine-injected group; as compared to CA (150) COL group; (Repeated measures two-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s test for multiple comparisons). Note: ACSF: artificial cerebrospinal fluid; COL: colchicine; CA: Centella asiatica.
