English Lecture Series: Dr. Hamid-Reza Adhami

The 2nd lecture of winter semester english lecture series was held by Dr. Hamid-Reza Adhamii on Oct 17, 2016 in the title of Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors from Selected Medicinal Plants Used in Iranian Traditional Medicine.

Cognitive deficits are one of the most common causes of mental deterioration such as learning impairment, delayed amnesia and memory problems e.g. in Alzheimer’s disease. The enhancement of cholinergic function by inhibition of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is considered as a rational approach for the treatment of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer´s disease and senile dementia. During the last two decades the use of herbal medicinal substances in dementia therapy has been studied well.

Iran is among those countries with the longest and richest history in Traditional Medicine and especially in the use of herbal medicinal preparations. In this project some herbal drugs or plant products that are reported in Iranian traditional medicine (ITM) or ethnomedicine as sources for the treatment of cognitive disorders were examined.
