Nootropics also referred to as smart drugs, memory enhancers, neuro enhancers, cognitive enhancers, and intelligence enhancers, are drugs, supplements, nutraceuticals, and functional foods that purportedly improve mental functions such as cognition, memory, intelligence, motivation, attention, and concentration. Nootropics are thought to work by altering the availability of the brain's supply of neurochemicals (neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones), by improving the brain's oxygen supply… 

Nootropics as Cognitive Enhancers: Types, Dosage and Side Effects of Smart Drugs

TLDR
This review provides an up-to-date overview of the potential effectiveness and importance of nootropic drugs and specific recommendations regarding the use of nootropics by both ill and healthy individuals are summarized.

Nootropics: Phytochemicals with Neuroprotective and Neurocognitive Enhancing Properties

TLDR
Nootropics open the door for new research, clinical implementation and promotion of integrative health especially in cognitive neuroscience by implementing products of natural sources to improve neurocognitive functioning and health improvement.

Can Nutrients and Dietary Supplements Potentially Improve Cognitive Performance Also in Esports?

Factors influencing brain function and cognitive performance can be critical to athletic performance of esports athletes. This review aims to discuss the potential beneficial effects of

A Review on Medicinal Plants with Potential Nootropic Activity along with Animal Models Needed for their Screening

TLDR
Reconciliation of knowledge of medicinal plants with nootropic action, as well as the animal models needed to screen them are rehabilitated.

A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW ON THE PREVALENCE OF MENTALLY CHALLENGED ADOLESCENTS IN INDIA AND THE EFFICACY OF DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS WITH HERBS ON COGNITIVE FUNCTION

TLDR
Plants such as Centella asiatica, Bacopa monnieri, and various herbs are rich source of omega 3, Alpha-linolenic acid, Minerals and Vitamins which helps in cognitive development and work as memory enhancer in human being.

Nootropic effects of quince leaf (Cydonia Oblonga Miller.) decoct in mice: A neurobehavioral approach complemented with kinetics and molecular docking studies of encephalic acetylcholinesterase inhibition

TLDR
QLD intake did not lead to behavioral toxicity and exerted AChE inhibitory effects of QLD and would be rationalized as a putative phyto-nootropic remedy, which connotes nootropic property ofQLD.

Hydro-alcoholic Extract of Commiphora mukul Gum Resin May Improve Cognitive Impairments in Diabetic Rats

TLDR
Commiphora mukul extract can improve passive-avoidance learning and memory impairments in the STZ-induced diabetic rats, and may be due to the antioxidant, acetylcholinesterase inhibitory activity, anti-inflammatory or power to reduce hyperglycemia and lowering cholesterol and triglyceride properties of this extract.

Brain foods: the effects of nutrients on brain function

TLDR
Understanding the molecular basis of the effects of food on cognition will help to determine how best to manipulate diet in order to increase the resistance of neurons to insults and promote mental fitness.

Design and study of piracetam-like nootropics, controversial members of the problematic class of cognition-enhancing drugs.

TLDR
Reasons for the problems encountered by nootropics, compounds therapeutically available and those in development, their structure activity relationships and mechanisms of action are discussed and the class is examined in more detail.

Cognition enhancers between treating and doping the mind.

Towards better brain management: nootropics.

TLDR
This review is an attempt towards discussing various approaches available to enhance memory, along with the classification of the known memory enhancers, authors research work towards various structural modifications carried out and the biological screening.

B vitamins, homocysteine, and neurocognitive function in the elderly.

TLDR
Advances in the understanding of this putative relation between inadequate vitamin status and loss of cognitive function in the elderly are likely to be slow and may depend on the outcomes of both prospective studies and longitudinal studies in which nutritional intervention is provided before cognitive decline occurs.

TLDR
Intervention trials in human subjects show that omega-3 fatty acids have possible positive effects in the treatment of various psychiatric disorders, but more data are needed to make conclusive directives in this regard.

Galantamine: effect on nicotinic receptor binding, acetylcholinesterase inhibition, and learning.

TLDR
The efficacy of Gal in a learning paradigm severely impaired in AD is consistent with outcomes in clinical studies and the drug was tested in two preclinical experiments.

Sesaminol glucosides protect beta-amyloid peptide-induced cognitive deficits in mice.

TLDR
D Dietary SG showed a protective effect against Abeta-induced learning and memory deficits in passive avoidance and the Morris water maze test, suggesting that SG protects against cognitive deficits induced by Abeta, in part through its antioxidant activity.

Memory-enhancing effects in male mice of pregnenolone and steroids metabolically derived from it.

TLDR
P and PS may exert their effects by serving as precursors for the formation of a panoply of different steroids, ensuring near-optimal modulation of transcription of immediate-early genes required for achieving the plastic changes of memory processes.
