Brain-specific nutrients: a memory cure?
We review the experimental evaluations of several widely marketed nonprescription compounds claimed to be memory enhancers and treatments for age-related memory decline. We generally limit our review to double-blind placebo-controlled studies. The compounds examined are phosphatidylserine (PS), phosphatidylcholine (PC), citicoline, piracetam, vinpocetine, acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC), and antioxidants (particularly vitamin E).  
BrainCells Inc.Phase 2a Trial
SAN DIEGO, Calif., June 14, 2010 – BrainCells Inc., a company leading the scientific research of neurogenesis using its proprietary neural stem cell platform technology to identify novel compounds for the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases, announced today findings from an exploratory, dose ranging Phase 2a clinical trial not powered for statistical significance. The trial evaluated BCI...
Carnitine esters prevent oxidative stress damage and energy depletion following transient forebrain ischaemia in the rat hippocampus.
1. The present study investigated whether propionyl-L-carnitine (PLC) has neuroprotective effects, similar to those reported for acetyl-L-carnitine (AC), against transient forebrain ischaemia-induced neuronal damage and biochemical derangement in the rat hippocampal CA1 region.
Chemistry, Pharmacology, and Clinical Efficacy of the Chinese Nootropic Agent Huperzine A
Alan P. Kozikowski was born in 1948 in Menominee, MI. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Berkeley, under the supervision of the late Professor W. G. Dauben. After postdoctoral work with Professor E. J. Corey at Harvard University, Dr. Kozikowski began his independent career at the University of Pittsburgh. After 14 years there, he spent...
Chronic administration of sulbutiamine improves long term memory
AbstractThiamine deficiency in both man and animals is known to produce memory dysfunction and cognitive disorders which have been related to an impairment of cholinergic activity. The present experiment was aimed at testing whether, inversely, chronic administration of large doses of sulbutiamine would have a facilitative effect on memory and would induce changes in central cholinergic activity. Accordingly mice...
Chronic treatment with sulbutiamine improves memory in an object recognition task
AbstractThe effect of a sulbutiamine chronic treatment on memory was studied in rats with a spatial delayed-non-match-to-sample (DNMTS) task in a radial maze and a two trial object recognition task. After completion of training in the DNMTS task, animals were subjected for 9 weeks to daily injections of either saline or sulbutiamine (12.5 or 25 mg/kg). Sulbutiamine did not...
Cognition enhancers between treating and doping the mind.
Memory, attention and creativity represent three different cognitive domains, which are interconnected and contribute the "mental performance" of an individual. Modern neuroscience has investigated some of the neuronal circuits and of the neurotransmitters and molecular events underlying the above-mentioned cognitive functions. Within this renewed reference context, some of the properties of the components of the remedies to increase mental...
Coherence and health care cost--RCA actuarial study: a cost-effectiveness cohort study
Abstract Chronic stress is among the most costly health problems in terms of direct health costs, absenteeism, disability, and performance standards. The Reformed Church in America (RCA) identified stress among its clergy as a major cause of higher-than-average health claims and implemented HeartMath (HM) to help its participants manage stress and increase physiological resilience. The 6-week HM program...
Coherence: a novel none pharmacological modality for lowering blood pressure in hypertensive patients.
Abstract This study examined the efficacy of teaching emotional self-regulation techniques supported by heart rhythm coherence training (emWave Personal Stress Reliever) as a means to quickly lower blood pressure (BP) in patients diagnosed with hypertension. Previous studies have demonstrated systemic reductions in BP in both high stress populations and patients diagnosed with hypertension using this approach, but...
