Ethanolic extract of Flowers of Madhuca longifolia was used as test drug in the doses 100, 200, 400 mg/kg on Mice of body weight 20-25gm for evaluation of CNS depressant activity on Actophotometer.

The significantly decreased in locomotor activity investigated with 400mg/kg Ethanolic extract of Madhuca longifolia with % inhibition of 55.92% as compared with control group who received distilled water 1.64%. The Ethanolic extract of Madhuca longifolia has shown specifically very negligible decline in locomotor activity with all dose 100, 200%400 mg/kg by 1.46, 12.85 and 55.92 respectively.
