KMY Amin, KC Singhal, Chandra Om
1. The central effect of aqueous and alcoholic extracts of the leaves of Lycopersicon esculentum (tomato) were studied.
2. The extracts exhibited central depressant activity and analgesic activity and blocked conditioned avoidance response.
3. It appears that the active principles responsible for central effects are other than tomatine.
4. The alcoholic extract produced a higher modality of central depression than the aqueous .extract.
