SUMMARY The successful use of plants of the Shiksheva family in folk and traditional medicine for epilepsy is not based on their anticonvulsant properties, which were not found experimentally. Only the ability of some drugs from shiksha species to increase tolerance to convulsive poisons and
influences, but not to provide full protection, has been revealed. The cerebroprotective properties of shiksha species are also manifested in the preservation and restoration of the conditioned and unconditioned reflex behavior of mice after their injury, and in the prevention of akinesia and
mortality in mice after electrical injury. Some of them are effective in hypoxia models.
