In this study the authors investigated the synergistic effect ofand red ginseng extracts on AChE activity in vitro and in mouse brain tissues and trimethyltin (TMT)-induced cognitive impairment in a mouse model of TMT-induced neurodegeneration. A diet containing a mixture ofand red ginseng extracts reversed learning and memory impairments in Y-maze and passive avoidance behavioral tests.
