Effects of methyl-eugenol administration on behavioral models related to depression and anxiety, in rats


, : Effects of methyl-eugenol administration on behavioral models related to depression and anxiety, in rats. Phytomedicine 12(4): 294-298

Croton zehntneri (Cz) is a popular plant in Brazilian folk medicine. Recently, the use of its essential oil showed depressive activity response in the central nervous system (CNS). Chemical studies show that the main compound of this oil is the methyl-eugenol (ME). This work seeks to evaluate the ME activity in behavioral models of depression and anxiety, in the rat.
