(Greek: mind, thought; intellect)
Piracetam (brand name: Nootropil®, Myocalm®), is a cerebral function regulating drug which claims to be able to enhance cognition as well as slow down brain aging.
Several pieces of literature on Piracetam indicate that it increases performance on a variety of cognitive tasks among dyslexic children, which may reflect improvements in intelligence or cross-hemispheric communication rather than a specific improvement in whatever causes dyslexia.
Piracetam also seems to inhibit brain damage caused by a variety of factors including hypoxia and excessive alcohol consumption.
