The effects on motor behaviour and short-term memory tasks in mice following an acute administration of Mitragyna speciosa alkaloid extract and mitragynine

This study investigates the effects of the alkaloid extract of Mitragyna speciosa  leaves and its major alkaloid mitragynine on exploratory behaviour, short-term memory and motor coordination in mice. 

 Findings from the study suggest that acute administration of M. speciosa alkaloid extract or mitragynine may enhance exploratory behaviour due to the decrease in stress to a novel environment.
