Abstract β-Asarone is an active component of the Acori graminei rhizome that is a traditional Chinese medicine clinically used in treating dementia in China. However, the cognitive effect of β-asarone and its mechanism has remained elusive. Here, we used asenescence-accelerated prone 8 (SAMP8) mice, which mimic many of the salient features of Alzheimer׳s disease (AD), to further investigate whether modulation of the ROCK signaling pathway and/or autophagy, synaptic loss is involved in the effect...

Based on the pharmacological research of Chinese herbs on AD and some famous hypothesis on AD, such as disfunction of nervous transmitter metabolism, apoptosis, inflammation etc, we consulted and analyzed relevant papers. We found the effective mechanism of Ginsenoside, Osthol, Rhodosin, and (-)Clausenamide were related to many pathological channels of AD, and Ginsenoside had effect on many pathological channels. The results have provided some clues for selecting effective herbs on AD.
