Abstract

A number of sources suggest that the natural herb ginkgo biloba enhances mental sharpness by increasing blood flow to the brain. A preliminary study was designed to examine whether memory for a maze would be enhanced in 5 mice who received a dietary supplement containing ginkgo biloba. The mice showed an improved memory for the maze as evidenced by a decrease in the number of errors in reaching the goal box when they received gingko biloba as a dietary supplement.
