Racetams is a category of synthetic substances with nootropic properties whose main purpose is to improve the function of memory and cognition. Each formulation from the rectam family has a slightly different effect. Some of them have long-term effect of regenerating the nervous system and creating new neural connections.
On the other hand, others have a more ad hoc and stimulating character. The first nootropic drug from the rectam group was created by a Romanian psychologist and chemist, Corneliu Giurgea, in 1964. Piracetam has become the most famous nootropic preparation in those days. He changed the fate of many seriously ill patients, stimulating the regeneration of the brain after injuries and strokes.
Romanian scientist, during the creation of this compound, was motivated by the motto that man can not wait passively for the next million years, until the evolution will supply him the perfect brain.
