Scientists have developed a pill that can boost a persons memory. The drug CX717 belongs to a family of compounds called ampakines and works by boosting the brain chemical glutamate that makes learning and recall easy. The drug is also being considered as a possible treatment for narcolepsy and ADHD.
UK trials on 16 sleep-deprived volunteers showed it improved wakefulness and mental ability.

Manufacturer Cortex is considering CX717 as a possible treatment for narcolepsy - excessive daytime sleepiness; and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) - a condition which impairs a child's ability to concentrate.

"As you get tired, communication between brain cells begins to fail. When you take the pill, the communication is better."

Oh ghods. I need it. It's finals week and I'm not always sure of who I am or WHERE I am. And man, talk about sleep-deprived.

One more paper to go, an IRB to start, and then I need to start collecting research papers so I can do a statistical analysis of them.

Spare braincells, anyone?
