      Curcumin is the active ingredient in the turmeric root and has anti-inflammatory properties and potential antidepressant effects. While curcumin may stimulate cell proliferation in the hippocampus, it is not clear if these changes in neurogenesis contribute to hippocampal-dependent learning. Based on evidence indicating that immature neurons begin modulating information processing when they are 4- to 6-weeks old, we are testing whether enhancing neurogenesis for 4 weeks with dietary curcumin promotes neurogenesis-dependent learning.
