Abstract Exploration of therapeutic mechanism is an integral part of medicinal plant based drug discovery for better understanding of pharmacological behavior of these agents. But,its study using conventional hit and trial wet laboratory experiments proves to be very tedious, time consuming and expensive,thus encouraging development of in silico techniques. Hence,an in silico technique has been devised using a computer software Prediction of Activity Spectra for Substances (PASS) to study pharmacodynamics of medicinal plants. The technique has been presented with a case study using Ficus religiosa L. (Moraceae) in which its anticonvulsant mechanism has been elucidated with PASS and further validated experimentally.
