Towards responsible use of cognitive-enhancing drugs by the healthy
Society must respond to the growing demand for cognitive enhancement by rejecting the idea that 'enhancement' is a dirty word, argue Henry Greely and colleagues.
Professor's little helper
The use of cognitive-enhancing drugs by both ill and healthy individuals raises ethical questions that should not be ignored, argue Barbara Sahakian and Sharon Morein-Zamir. The idea that a drug or
Cognition enhancers between treating and doping the mind.
Dextroamphetamine. Its cognitive and behavioral effects in normal and hyperactive boys and normal men.
Stimulants appear to act similarly on normal and hyperactive prepubertal boys and adults and adults.
Dextroamphetamine: cognitive and behavioral effects in normal prepubertal boys.
The similarity of the response observed in normal children to that reported in children with "hyperactivity" or minimal brain dysfunction casts doubt on pathophysiological models of minimal brain function which assume that children with this syndrome have a clinically specific or "paradoxical" response to stimulants.
Memory Dysfunction and Vigilance: Neurophysiological and Psychopharmacological Aspects
An impairment of vigilance was found to be significantly correlated with the clinical symptomatology of the organic brain syndrome (OBS) as well as with mnestic performance deficits and other methods for proving therapeutic efficacy in man are discussed.

Brahmi rasayana (BR) significantly improved learning and memory in young mice and reversed the amnesia induced by both scopolamine and natural aging, and significantly decreased whole brain acetyl cholinesterase activity.
Nicotinic effects on cognitive function: behavioral characterization, pharmacological specification, and anatomic localization
Discovery of the behavioral, pharmacological, and anatomic specificity of Nicotinic effects on learning, memory, and attention not only aids the understanding of nicotinic involvement in the basis of cognitive function, but also helps in the development of novelNicotinic treatments for cognitive dysfunction.

Experimental evaluations of several widely marketed nonprescription compounds claimed to be memory enhancers and treatments for age-related memory decline suggest that future evaluations of the possible memory benefits of these supplements might fruitfully focus on memory processes rather than on memory tests per se.
Neuropsychopharmacological effects of the Ayurvedic nootropic Bacopa monniera Linn. (Brahmi)
The bacosides significantly improved the acquisition, consolidation and retention in the shock-motivated brightness discrimination response, active conditioned avoidance response and produced a dose-dependent facilitation of discretion between an aversive (LiCL) and palatable fluid (sucrose) in the conditioned taste aversion (CTA) response.
