Cognitive and memory enhancer drugs, also known as nootropics or smart drugs, aim to improve cognitive function like memory, attention, creativity, and overall mental performance. These drugs are designed to enhance brain activity and promote better cognitive abilities. They are available by prescription for specific medical conditions and can be purchased over the counter (OTC) or online as dietary supplements. They enhance alertness and focus by increasing the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. They also boost acetylcholine levels, which is important for memory and learning. They act as antioxidants or anti-inflammatory agents, protecting the brain from damage and promoting optimal brain function. They can also promote clearer thinking and improve cognitive processing speed and lead to better decision-making abilities. They assist in improving short-term and long-term memory, which makes it easier to recall and retain information. They also aid in enhancing academic or work performance by increasing productivity, efficiency, and cognitive abilities.
