Nootropics

Postby Vagon » Tue Jul 06, 2010 2:19 am

Supposed to be supplements/drugs for enhancing cognition, memory etc etc. essentially smart-drugs.

Normally I'd cry BS, but I've been looking into some pub-med articles and there's a few that have decent sized clinical trials (with placebos and crossovers etc) and a few have sparked my interest.

Anyone tried them?

I would like to. It might offset the cognitive diminishing ones.

Actually, I have to take anti-nootropics to pass for normal...

No, I haven't tried anything like it, but I'm awfully curious. I suspect the effect will be more hype than anything else...
"Polymath" means "having learned much"; the correct word for "having failed to learn much" is simply "Ray".
