The research team at Laboratoire Lafon observed that CRL-40,941 had similar psychotonic and eurgeroic properties as Adrafinil – albeit with improved bioavailability through oral administration. The unique characteristic of CRL-40,941 is its anti-aggressive properties in animal models, which sets it apart from both Modafinil and Adrafinil.
