Background and Objectives: Alzheimer's disease is one of the most important neurodegenerative diseases that occur following the production of free radicals and inflammatory factors. Terpinolene has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. This study aimed to investigate the effects of terpinolene and physical activity on memory and learning in a model of Alzheimer's rats.
Methods: Bilateral injection of AB1-42 was administered to the hippocampus of the male rats to create the model of Alzheimer's disease. The assigned groups included control (-), sham, exercise, control (+), Alzheimer's+distilled water, Alzheimer's+exercise, Alzheimer's+terpinolene (treatment), Alzheimer's+terpinolene (prevention), and Alzheimer's+terpinolene+exercise. Superoxide dismutase (SOD), Malondialdehyde (MDA) level, shuttle box behavioral test, as well as neurogenesis and amyloid plaques were assessed in this study. The data were statistically analyzed using one-way ANOVA.
Results: The SOD activity and neurogenesis levels decreased significantly in the control (+) group, compared to control groups of the behavioral test. However, the MDA level and plaque increased significantly (P<0.05). Terpinolene intake and exercise caused a significant increase in neurogenesis, a significant decrease in plaques, and significant changes in biochemical and behavioral parameters (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Based on the results of this study and previous reports on the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of terpinolene and exercise, it seems that this combination along with exercise can improve memory complications and disorders.
