“With integrity, you have nothing to fear, since you have nothing to hide. With integrity, you will do the right thing, so you will have no guilt.” – Zig Ziglar When faced with deciding on how to act, sometimes the toughest part is figuring out how to do the right thing.

How, then, can you make an informed choice and be confident that you’ll do the right thing? Start with integrity.

Mainly rodent-based, experimental animal models of depression are extensively used to probe the pathogenesis of this disorder. Here, we emphasize the need for innovative approaches to studying depression, and call for a wider use of novel model organisms, such as the zebrafish (Danio rerio). Highly homologous to humans and r...

ConclusionsThis study explored the antidepressant potential of A. wiedemanniana. Using bioassay-guided fractionation and isolation techniques, tatridin A and tanachin (1-epi-tatridin B) were determined as the main active components of the flowers. Further antidepressant mechanistic studies should be conducted for exploring the activity of these compounds against depression. This study can be an important step in the discovery of newer antidepressants.Graphical abstract
