Description

Aniracetam is a member of pyrrolidin-2-ones and a N-acylpyrrolidine. It is a compound with anti-depressive properties used as a mental performance enhancer.

Piracetam’s mode of action in cortical myoclonus is as yet unknown. Piracetam exerts its haemorrheological effects on the platelets, red blood cells, and vessel walls by increasing erythrocyte deformability and by decreasing platelet aggregation, erythrocyte adhesion to vessel walls and capillary vasospasm.
