Abstract: The development of new drugs for neurodegenerative disorders, very specifically to make them to reach the brain is complicated. The isolation of specific phytoconstituents from ethanopharmacologically important plants may lead to identification of novel neuroprotective agents or neurotonic agents. The least number of drugs currently available for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders and their adverse drug reactions accelerates the need for exploitation of alternative molecules from plant sources.
