The paper reviews the existing and future nootropic drugs (cognition enhancers) with different mechanisms of action and heterogenous chemical structures, which have been developed on the basis of knowledge of the mechanisms of learning, memory and forgetting, as well as degenerative processes in aging brain and disease-associated cognitive impairments. These agents influence on acetylcholine-, glutamate-, GABA-, 5-HT-, dopamine-, histamine-, adenosine-, phosphodiesterase-, neurotrophic- systems… 

Functional State of Various Types of Regeneration-Competent Cells in the Nervous Tissue in Ethanol-Induced Neurodegeneration

In vivo administration of ethanol in vivo suppressed differentiation of neural stem cells and decreased the number of committed precursors (neural cluster-forming units) in the subventricular zone of cerebral hemispheres in C57Bl/6JY mice.
