Perhaps I'm in the minority but I thought "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" was a fantastic and wildly entertaining movie, so I was delighted to learn Russell Brand would be doing this interview in Aldous Snow's character...hilarious!  

That was of course until I realized he wasn't pretending to be a delusional, pompous, media-Frankenstein...this guy was friggin serious.

"The idea of something glistening yet visceral" said Brand of something about absolutely nothing. And those gems kept coming...

Will someone please, console me, please tell me he's just doing an homage to Joaquin Phoenix..or perhaps something even more benign and respectable, like a heavy mescaline habit?

Anyone?

Here are a couple valuable and interesting resources: first is a unique "self-help for hackers" type site at www.bulletproofexecutive.com.  The second is the largest library of live storytelling.  Here's a link if interested: http://themoth.org/stories.  Enjoy

Fascinating article on "Dr. Feelgood" and JFK's (possibly unwitting) addictions to myriad heavy drugs.

Hey all, I know I'm deviating a bit from the conventional "nootropic", but I wanted to bring an absolutely fascinating technology to your attention.  The tech is called tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) and the results it's been getting are almost too good to be true!  I just received the first consumer tDCS headset (have yet to use!) and wanted to share the experience.  Wish me luck!

To +Jim A's post on #Centrophenoxine  I concur.  In fact, here are 3 good reasons to add this powerful nootropic to your stack:

#Centrophenoxine  has proven pretty darn effective as a nootropic in fighting cerebral aging, slowing (even reducing) lipofuscin throughout the body (a key marker of biological aging), and is itself a choline source (and can be taken instead of CDP-choline or DMAE, etc) .

Here are a few interesting studies that have demonstrated its effectiveness in combating the effects of aging and age-related disease:

The most remarkable was done by Professor Imre Zs. Nagy of the University of Debrecen (in Hungary) who found that Centrophenoxine modified the cell structure of elderly animals and increased their longevity by 40% compared to controls.  

Here are a couple others:

Great post, my mother is taking #Centrophenoxine. She is a 63 year old teacher and sharp as can be. It is one of the #nootropics that I will always take. Great post.

Hey +Doug Hynes , thanks for sharing.  That was an excellent primer on Nootropic herbs in Ayurveda; which is an entire universe of potential that has, as of yet, largely been ignored as an option in the "nootropics mainstream" (or even the periphery for that matter).  

It would appear, based on that article, that we'll be seeing a lot more Ayurvedic compounds gain recognition for their cognitive enhancing properties...

Thanks again,
CH

Hey all,

I'm curious to know if any of you know much about the "CILTEP stack"? It's been getting a lot of attention very recently for its purportedly powerful effects in enhancing memory, learning, and mood?  Here's a bit more information on it?

The #CILTEP stack is meant to work by inducing a state of LTP, or "long-term-potentiation" in the brain.  In simplified terms, #LTP is typically achieved by intensively stimulating a group of axons that converge on a target neuron.   The process itself is believed to be a major underlying factor in synaptic plasticity and considered one of the key cellular mechanisms that underly learning and memory. 

CILTEP bypasses the need for conventional synaptic activation of LTP through use of chemicals (or supplements as it were).  These supplements, in part, raise cAMP concentrations in the brain, as well as help inhibit their depletion (PDE4 inhibition).

Dopamine also plays a role in LTP.   This stack purportedly improves the effectiveness of dopamine's function in catalyzing learning and memory processes.  Of note, CILTEP preserves the normal chemical dynamics of the dopamine system and does not result in down-regulation of the dopamine receptors. 

CILTEP PROGRAM COMPONENTS:

Forskolin 
Artichoke Extract
Phenylalanine or Other Dopamine Precursor
Optional Stimulant

For additional information please visit:

Here is another great conversation string on the topic:

And a related study:

I'd love to know if any in this community have experience with CILTEP and/or get your thinking on its legitimacy?

Thanks,

I have experience with it. It works. Tolerance seems to come on fast. Works best on an empty stomach with caffeine. I have used caffeine alone as well so there is a definite increase in clear headed stimulation when combining with CILTEP stack.

Bragging rights
Can wrap pinkie toe over fourth toe with relative ease (references available upon request). Became a "top reviewer" on Amazon.com to cover up a drunken fib about being "top ranked" before I was...I thought it'd be easy but it took three years and over 150 book reviews to finally become one! Only then did I confess to the lie. Oh, and I never had so much as a single drink of alcohol until I was 21 years old.
