Abstract

This experimental study had determined the effect of Biga plant on the central nervous system of 25 female albino rats using crude extract of 50 % with at least 2 months of age and by using Standard Pharmacological Test to determine its affectivity. The crude extract of biga rhizomes was administered through average weight of the rats and given once by gavage method. The response of the rats was evaluated using the parameters from Standard Pharmacological Procedures. Based on the findings, it was concluded that the Biga rhizome extract had a stimulant effect on the CNS of the female albino rats; therefore it had no anesthetic property. The researchers also conclude that the hindbrain, specifically the cerebellum that is in charge in controlling voluntary and involuntary action of the body was affected by the extract.
