ABSTRACT

The effects of Daucus carota (Carrot) juice on memory, cognito-motor balance and gait pattern was investigated in wistar rats. Twenty (20) wistar rats weighing from 120-150g were used for this study. The twenty (20) rats were sorted into four groups with five (5) wistar rats in each group. The first group served as the control group, which was given only feed and water. The second group was administered dopamine (0.1ml/100g), intraperitoneally in addition to their feed and water. The third group was administered low dose of Daucus carota juice (0.5ml/100g). The fourth group was administered high dose of Daucus carota (Carrot) juice 1ml/100g. Neuro- behavioral tests for memory, cognito-motor balance and gait patterns were carried out using the passive avoidance test, rotarod test, handgrip test and beam walking test. The outcome of this study was statistically analyzed using ANOVA. The results of study showed that Daucus carota (Carrot) juice has a significant (p< 0.05) memory boosting effect and improved cognito-motor balance but has little or no significant influence on gait patterns.
