In a broad sense, actoprotectors may be defined as drugs preventing a decrease in the working capacity under conditions unfavorable for living and functioning. In contrast to psychomotor stimulants (phenamine, etc.), actoprotectors must not be exhaustive with respect to energy resourses of the organism. The effect of actoprotectors reduces to increasing the efficiency of consuming the energetic substrates and to stimulating recovery processes [1, 2]. Adaptogens are pharmacological preparations… 
The Pharmacology of Actoprotectors: Practical Application for Improvement of Mental and Physical Performance
TLDR
The history of actoprotectors’ development, their pharmacological properties, mechanism of action, and practical application to the improvement of mental and physical performance are explored.
Thermodynamics of the Antiviral and Antiparkinsonian Drug Amantadine Hydrochloride: Condensed State Properties and Decomposition
Heat capacities of the antiviral and antiparkinsonian drug amantadine hydrochloride in the crystalline state were measured by adiabatic and differential scanning calorimetry in the temperature range
Potential Synthetic Adaptogens. II. Synthesis and Pharmacological Activity of New Conformationally Labile Bromantane Analogs, N-[(Adamantan-1-YL)Methyl]-4-Bromoanilines
New structural analogs of bromantane with greater conformational lability than the prototype were synthesized. Their physiological activity profiles were assessed in vivo. It was found that the
Potential synthetic adaptogens 1. Synthesis and studies of new N-[(adamantan-1-yl)methyl]aniline derivatives based on adamantane-1-carbaldehyde
A number of new N-[(adamantan-1-yl)methyl]aniline derivatives, which can be considered as conformationally labile analogues of synthetic adaptogen Bromantan, were obtained by the reductive amination
Potential Synthetic Adaptogens: V. Synthesis of Cage Monoamines by the Schwenk–Papa Reaction
The reduction of cage ketoximes under Schwenk–Papa reaction conditions was studied to establish that the d,l, d- and l-camphor oximes are smoothly reduced to the corresponding amines in high yields.

Memantine, a noncompetitive NMDA receptor antagonist improves hyperammonemia‐induced encephalopathy and acute hepatic encephalopathy in rats
TLDR
Results indicate that NMDA‐ receptor activation might be involved in the pathogenesis of hyperammonemia‐induced encephalopathy and of acute hepatic encephalopathies caused by LIS.
Trapping channel block of NMDA-activated responses by amantadine and memantine.
We investigated the mechanisms by which the antiparkinsonian and neuroprotective agents amantadine and memantine inhibit responses to N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA). Whole cell recordings were

TLDR
It is concluded that amantadine acts partly by releasing catecholamines from neuronal stores, which may be the result of a direct postsynaptic receptor stimulation.
Mechanism of memantine block of NMDA‐activated channels in rat retinal ganglion cells: uncompetitive antagonism.
TLDR
The predominant mechanism of open‐channel blockade by memantine is uncompetitive, and the degree of blockade at various concentrations of agonist for "pure' non‐competitive vs. uncompetitive inhibition was computer simulated.
