Objective: To investigate the neuroprotective effects of curcumin in albino mice focusing on memory and behavior. Materials and Methods: Four groups of 7 mice each, different concentrations of curcumin were administered for 3 weeks in 3 groups and the remaining group was kept as control. The effect of curcumin on behavior and memory was studied using various tests. The expression of core circadian rhythm genes and micro RNAs were also studied. Results: Our results revealed that curcumin improves the mice's behavior by regulating oxidative stress, hippocampal neurogenesis, and modulation of core circadian genes and their associated micro-RNA. Conclusion: This study shows that curcumin has a potential neuroprotective effect.
