Thread: Smart Drugs 2 - The Next Generation

    Default Smart Drugs 2 - The Next Generation

    SMART DRUGS 2 - THE NEXT GENERATION
    by Ward Dean, John Morgenthaler and Steven Fowkes


    A Review



    Sceptics about nootropics ("smart drugs") are unwitting victims of the so-called Panglossian paradigm of evolution. They believe that our cognitive architecture has been so fine-honed by natural selection that any tinkering with such a wonderfully all-adaptive suite of mechanisms is bound to do more harm than good. Certainly the notion that merely popping a pill could make you brighter sounds implausible. It sounds like the sort of journalistic excess that sits more comfortably in the pages of Fortean Times than any scholarly journal of repute.

    Yet as Dean, Morgenthaler and Fowkes' (hereafter "DMF") book attests, the debunkers are wrong. On the one hand, numerous agents with anticholinergic properties are essentially dumb drugs. They impair memory, alertness, verbal facility and creative thought. Conversely, a variety of cholinergic drugs and nutrients, which form a large part of the smart-chemist's arsenal, can subtly but significantly enhance cognitive performance on a whole range of tests. This holds true for victims of Alzheimer's Disease, who suffer in particular from a progressive and disproportionate loss of cholinergic neurons. Yet, potentially at least, cognitive enhancers can aid non-demented people too. Members of the "normally" ageing population can benefit from an increased availability of acetylcholine, improved blood-flow to the brain, increased ATP production and enhanced oxygen and glucose uptake. Most recently, research with ampakines, modulators of neurotrophin-regulating AMPA-type glutamate receptors, suggests that designer nootropics will soon deliver sharper intellectual performance even to healthy young adults.

    what drugs exactly are we talking about here? i would think that the above statement would be true, but not while on the drugs, but rather when your not taking them.. its the same principle of how heroin and other such drugs work; it makes your brain release tons of endorphines, and at the same time the heroin blocks the natural endorphine process, so you get a surplus of them when high, and your brain cant produce anything when your not high, thus comes addiction.. think this type of thing is only for hard drugs? do you NEED a cup of coffee to start the day? similar thing, but on a smaller scale

    back to off the topic...if I ever make it out to cali (or vegas) I would live to meet up with you guys. To date, I've never had any experience with any hallucinogens. It would be sweet to have a responsible sitter and then the next day play some AP blackjack. Talk about total enlightenment!

    this method works pretty well.
    I put some in an empty bottle of ocean.
