Abstract :

Neurodegeneration, which increases with aging, decreases cognitive and motor function. Neuronal death in neurodegenration is mostly caused by neuroinflammation, mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress. Recently, many studies are concantrated on slowing down, even stopping, the neurodegeneration using different molecules. In addition, slowing the neurodegeneration down has beneficial effects on learning and memory. Importantly, recent studies on oleuropein have shown that it has neuroporetective effects.

In this study, we investigated the efects of oleuropein on different brain waves patterns. Effects of oleuropein with dietary intake on neuronal modulation was studied on 12 subjects. EEG recordings of the voluntary subjects were analysed using ASA software. Our results show that the difference of alpha frequency magnitude between two hemispheres has decreased, beta frequency magnitude has decreased on the left hemisphere, theta frequency magnitude has decreased on both hemispheres, gamma frequency magnitude has sepecially decreased on right hemisphere and the slowest wave, the delta wave, frequency magnitude has significantly increased on both hemispheres. When the overall brain activity is examined, we identified a general decrease on brain wave frequencies.

Our results show that oleuropein may have anxiolytic effects via change of neuronal modulation. Suppression of slow waves may have effects on learning mechanism. However, dose dependent increase of the anxiolytic effect may act contrary and repress learning mechanisms.
