It is retention of information over time influencing future acts and is most important aspect to differentiate from one individual from other as human beings, recognizing individual self. Thousands of years of wisdom filled Ayurveda, one of the main Indian medicine systems, described Medhya rasaynas, special herbs which acts exclusively on human brain. Kushmanda and Yashti are two of many other medhya rasaynas mentioned in these ancient texts. Go ghrita is also known for its medhya property; therefore compound of these drugs is used in this study.
