Abstract


The comparative preventive effect of curcumin, memantine, and diclofenac on scopolamine-induced memory dysfunction was investigated in a controlled study. A group of male and female rats was treated with one of these compounds for 15 days, after which a single dosage of scopolamine was administered. The preventive activity of curcumin on memory dysfunction was higher than that of diclofenac or memantine, that was, however, administered at lower dosages. Gender differences were observed.
