1. Alcoholic extract of whole plant Coldenia procumhens (AECP) produced central nervous system depression and significant prolongation of pentobarbitone sleeping time. 2. AECP exhibited significant analgesic effect by tail clip method, but not when tested by acetic acid writhing syndrome or by radiant heat method. 3. It has no anticonvulsant effect, and did not alter body temperature or abolish conditioned avoidance response.
