Abstract

Antidepressant effects of ethanolic extract of the bark of Saraca indica was studied on reserpine induced hypothermia and forced swim test to assess the antidepressant activity. The study revealed that the bark extract at the dose levels of 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg showed significant antidepressant effect in a dose dependent manner.
