Effect of essential oil from ginger (Zingiber officinale) and turmeric (Curcuma longa) on prefrontal-cortex (a) and hippocampus (b) acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity in cadmium-induced neuroinflammation in rats. Data represent the mean ± SEM of a group of eight rats ( < 0.01, < 0.001 vs control; ##P < 0.01vs Cd Induced). Key: Control: received normal saline + vehicle. Tur Oil: received normal saline + turmeric essential oil (50 mg/kg). Ging Oil: received normal saline + ginger essential oil (50 mg/kg). Cd Induced: received Cd + vehicle. Tur Oil + Cd: received Cd + turmeric essential oil (50 mg/kg). Ging Oil + Cd: received Cd + ginger essential oil (50 mg/kg).
