ABSTRACT
Scopolamine a cholinergic antagonist may cause amnesia in human and animal models. Amnesia induced by Scopolamine has been widely used to understand the biochemical and behavioral changes in rodents. This model can be used to describe the therapeutic targets of memory impairment. In this model the Scopolamine decreases the central cholinergic neuronal activity, block muscarinic receptor and induces oxidative stress. Cholinesterase inhibitors (Donepezil, tacrine, galantamine, and rivastigmine are widely used in the treatment of amnesia. These inhibitors showed non-significant effects. Therefore, herbal medicine can be the sources for the treatment of memory loss due to their Antiacethylcholine esterase and antioxidant activities. In this paper introducing the medicinal plants and their components affecting amnesia on the scopolamine induced model are discussed.

ABSTRACT
A simple, selective, precise and robust high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) method was developed and validated for the determination of scopolin, in Convolvulus pluricaulis, commonly known as shankhpushpi. Aluminium backed pre-coated TLC plates (Silica gel 60F-254) of 0.2 mm thickness, were utilized to perform chromatography. The plates were developed up to 90 mm distance in twin trough glass chamber, saturated for 10 min with mobile phase system (Chloroform: methanol, 8.5:1.5, v/v). The system produces a sharp and well-defined peak for scopolin (Rfvalue; 0.30 ± 0.02). Scopolin was quantified in various test samples (extracts and marketed formulation) at absorbance maxima of 340 nm with the help of CAMAG TLC scanner III. The linear regression analysis data for the calibration plots (concentration Vs peak area) showed good linearity (r2 = 0.9992 ± 0.0002) in the concentration range of 20-160 ng spot−1. The method was validated in accordance with International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guidelines. The statistical analysis of the results, indicate that the proposed method is specific, accurate and precise. Further, this method can be used for the standardization of shankhpushpi and its formulations.
