This beautiful magazine advertisement from Eduardo A. Cánovas depicts the brain, that is, the primary target of Tonibral, one of the many names by which the p-acetamidobenzoate salt of DMAE was being sold, from the early 50s to the late 70s.
The concept of "nootropic" substance - that is, a drug that enhances memory and cognition - was developed by Corneliu E. Giurgea, a chemist who also synthesized piracetam, the first nootropic.
Fasoracetam is the newest racetam and one of the most potent nootropics yet discovered. It is currently being studied as a non-stimulant ADHD treatment, but it may also work as an antidepressant nootropic.
