Aim- To evaluate the nootropic effect of three dosages forms of Guduchi. Material and methods-  Guduchi Satva, Ghana and Churna was prepared following the classical methods, for experimental study animals were divided into five groups of six animals each, comprising of both male and female in each group as Group A, B, C,D and E who received CMC, piracetam, Satva, Ghana and Churna respectively. Statistical Analysis - One-way ANOVA test followed by post hoc Tucky & Kramer multiple comparison test using graph pad prism 6. Was used for statistical analysis Results - Piracetam, Guduchi satva and Ghana significantly reversed spatial loss of learning and memory in morris water maze test and significantly reversed the deficit of spatial learning and memory by increase in step through latency in passive avoidance test.
