The Future Of Cognition

I met a fellow on the reddit nootropics board who writes for the Bi-co news of Haverford and Bryn Mawr Colleges. He wrote an article on nootropics and, more specifically about the impact that he sees nootropics having in the future. His conclusions about the possible effects of these chemicals are pretty much spot on, I think. In terms of predictions about the impact of intelligence increase on a global scale are certainly something to think about. I contacted him about the article and he politely allowed me to repost it. You can read the article in its entirety here:

Cephalon Discontinues Olmifon (Adrafinil)

About a month ago, a number of distributors and online retailers of Adrafinil abruptly stopped stocking and selling Adrafinil. There was little information to be had other than the fact that all online retailers stocking Adrafinil were now stocking “SOLD OUT” signs. I looked into this and contacted a number of retailers. I asked specifically what information they had about the discontinuation. Nubrain responded with a simple email reply of “no more info”. Butch at AwakeBrain wrote back with more information “Very little info anywhere. Cephalon was bought out and as part of their consolidation stopped production of Olmifon with

1. Piracetam – Piracetam is probably one of the best-known nootropics within the nootropic community, however, if you’re new to the scene, you may never have heard about it. Piracetam is one of the oldest nootropics available, and has formed an entire family of other nootropic drugs with similar methods of actions. This family is called the “Racetam” family and consists of a dozen or so other chemicals.

For a detailed history and information about Piracetam, check out the Piracetam page. 2. CDPCholine – Acetylcholine is

Adrafinil

Adrafinil is a mild stimulant of the central nervous system commonly used to prevent sleepiness in Narcolepsy patients. Narcolepsy is characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness. Adrafinil successfully combats this, and can be used in a similar way on individuals without Narcolepsy. Adrafinil is metabolized into Modafinil while passing through the body, and essentially has the same effects; such as alertness, an increase in cognitive abilities, and an increase of energy. Adrafinil does however take longer to become active due to the time it takes the metabolite to become active in the bloodstream, which is typically 45–60 minutes. Scientists working for Group Lafon, a French
