Racetams are a class of nootropic drugs that share a pyrrolidine nucleus.
Additional recommended knowledge
The racetams are understood to work by activating glutamate receptors that are colocalized with cholinergic receptors, thus increasing the firing of the latter. The racetams consequently increase memory capacity by nearly the same method as the acetylcholinesterase inhibitors.
