Ethanol and aqeuous extracts of Plumeria rubra (EEPR AND AEPR) at the dose of 100 mg/kg and 200 mg/kg were evaluated for anti-depressent activity in mice by phenobarbitone induced model. The anti-deprassant activity of the ethanol extract and the aqueous extract (100mg/kg and 200mg/kg) were studied in the phenobarbitione induced mice model. The parameters like onset of sleep and duration of sleep were studied by comparing it with the standard phenobarbitone drug (75mg/kg). The experimental result were expressed as mean S. E. M. Data were analysed by one way ANOVA using Dunnets test. P values of
