Cortex Pharmaceuticals and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) tested Ampakine CX717 in an attempt to reverse the effects of sleep deprivation in non-human primates.
Both drugs promise even longer periods of wakefulness, and in experiments with Ampakine CX717, sleep-deprived rhesus monkeys on the drug often outperformed their own well-rested but undrugged best efforts on mental-performance tests.
Scientific American reports on military research to "juice up" soldiers 'brains using amphetamine-alternatives like Provigil and Ampakine CX717.
"Our studies now demonstrate that we can restore levels of BDNF by treating mice with an Ampakine, which reverses the memory impairments."
