Memory-Enhancing Activity of Bioactive Compounds: From Natural Sources to Brain
Plants have been used to flavor and preserve food for thousands of years, as well as to treat health problems and prevent diseases such as epidemics. The medicinal powers of these plants have been passed down the generations within and among human communities. The biological qualities of some plant species used around the world for various purposes are usually due to active chemicals created during secondary vegetal metabolism. Many experimental, pharmacological, and clinical studies have shown that plant extracts exhibit various biological activities, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antimutagenic, anticytotoxic, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective properties.
The present Topic invites manuscript submissions, research, and review papers, targeting the identification and mechanistic characterization of novel pharmacological targets, signaling pathways, and mechanisms of action of natural compounds and their derivatives in multiple ways.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
• Molecular docking studies;
• Neurobehavioral pharmacological studies;
• Signaling pathways;
