The genus Ardisia (Myrsinaceae) represented 200 species in the warm climates of tropical and subtropical regions of the world. In India, 13 species are represented, from which 7 are endemic and nine species are recorded in Tamil Nadu. The phytochemical analysis of ethanol extract in this plant already showed the presence of various phytocompounds such as flavonids, glycosides, terpenoids and anthraquinones. The earlier spectrum studies also given certain clue for potential compounds are present in plant ethanol extract. Uses of traditional medicinal attributed especially to Ardisia include alleviation of liver cancer, swelling, rheumatism, earache, cough, fever, diarrhea, broken bones, dysmenorrhea, respiratory tract infections, traumatic injuries, inflammation, pain, snake and insect bites, birth complications and to improve general blood circulation. The present study clearly showed that Ethanol Extract of Ardisia blatteri (EEAB) has the significant Neuro protection and memory enhancement value proved by Nootropic activity
