Post Nigella sativa (LINN) seeds (Ranunculaceae)
This reference link to a new research report on Nigella sativa (LINN) seeds Ranunculaceae commonly known as "black seeds", "black cumin", "Nutmeg Flower" "Roman coriander" "quatre épices" (among other common names) arrived in my email today. It seems to have effected a significant improvement in memory in test of Alzheimer's subjects after nine weeks' use.

The effect of Nigella sativa Linn. seed on memory, attention and cognition in healthy human volunteers.
