Piracetam is a Nootropic that displays cognitive enhancing properties. Piracetam is a modulator of neurotransmitter-induced ion flux and is proposed to enhance neurotransmission via this modulation. Through AMPA receptors, Piracetam potentiates Na+ influx. Piracetam also facilitates the efficiency of cholinergic neurotransmission at muscarinic receptors.
There has been a lot of scientific research conducted on Piracetam to date. Hundreds of human clinical studies have been conducted, and hundreds more animal studies. Piracetam is known to many as the ‘father’ of Nootropics – a substance from which many new Nootropics were developed. Many of the early claims about Piracetam’s abilities have since come under scrutiny.
