Drugs for cognitive enhancement

Cognitive enhancers are therapeutics/drugs that can be used to increase the brain’s function on cognitive measurements such as memory, reasoning, attention, learning and mood.  In the scientific community, these cognitive enhancers are also known as smart drugs or as nootropics. The intellectual functions are enhanced by these drugs by affording a high level of neurotransmitters to the brain and triggering important receptors. Use of these cognition-enhancers by healthy individuals in the absence of a medical indication is one of the most controversial topics among, psychiatrists, neuroscientists and physicians. Only a few drugs are known to enhance the aspect of cognition.  Stimulants, such as caffeine is the most commonly used class of drug.
