Neuroprotectants are substances or agents that have the ability to protect nerve cells (neurons) from damage or degeneration caused by various pathological processes, including injury, disease, or aging. They work by mitigating or preventing the harmful effects of factors such as oxidative stress, inflammation, excitotoxicity, and apoptosis (programmed cell death) on the nervous system.

Neuroprotectants have potential applications in the treatment and prevention of various neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and other neurological disorders. However, more research is needed to fully understand their mechanisms of action and effectiveness in clinical settings.
