In a St. Joseph Health Scene Report, some scientists now say healthy people should be allowed to boost their brains with pills. Brain boosting medication is prescribed for hyperactive kids and memory impaired seniors, but a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania doesn't see any reason why others can not also improve their brain function with pills. Some examples would be middle-aged people looking for more youthful memory powers or multi-taskers looking to keep track of many projects at the same time.
