The abstract was presented on February 5th at the 48th Annual Meeting of the Portuguese Society of Pharmacology. The abstract suggests Coriolus versicolor biomass has a positive effect in the hippocampal neurogenic reserve. Furthermore, there is unexplored neurogenic potential of Coriolus versicolor biomass supplementation, as a possible preventive strategy for different neurological conditions. The Coriolus versicolor used in the study was supplied by Mycology Research Laboratories Ltd. (www.mycologyresearch.com).
