Özet

The aqueous extract of Centranthus longiflorus ssp. longiflorus (CLE) was investigated for sedative, anticonvulsant and behaviour modifying activity using thiopental sleeping, caffeine induced convulsion and forced swimming depression tests. When the effects of the aqueous extract of CLE (100 mg/kg) was compared to diazepam, it showed similar sedative and anticonvulsant effects to those produced by diazepam (5 mg/kg).
