Both noopept and piracetam modulate acetylcholine and glutamate (AMPA) function. These may underlie most of the cognitive enhancing effects seen with both substances.

Both increase sensitivity to Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) [2]. Noopept actually increases NGF levels, and NGF has long been linked to healthy brain function and repair.

Both may help mitochondrial function; piracetam by modulating amyloidal toxicity and
