Nooglutyl is a nootropic agent that was studied at the Research Institute of Pharmacology, Russian Academy of Medical Sciences as a potential treatment for amnesia.[1]

In animal models, it has a variety of central nervous system effects.[2][3][4][5]

Nooglutyl has some structural similarities to Picamilon (N-Nicotinoyl-GABA). Nooglutyl is N-5-HydroxyNicotinoyl-L-Glutamic acid.
