Abstract
Excessive alcohol consumption is associated with cognitive and behavioral impairments. Drosophila melanogaster is a commonly used model for learning and memory studies. We looked at Garcinia binucao to determine the ability of its crude ethanolic leaf extract to reduce deficits in learning, short-term memory, and motor functions due to alcohol exposure. Chronic alcohol exposure significantly decreased motor function by 22%(p
