In brief: Neurochemistry 101
Persistent activation of central nervous system nmda receptors by the excitatory Amino Acid glutamate has been hypothesized to contribute to the symptomatology of alzheimer’s disease.
Namenda (memantine) is postulated to exert its therapeutic effect through its action by blocking nmda receptors. Namenda (memantine) is approved by the fda for the treatment of moderate to severe alzheimer's dementia.

In brief: Namanda
Is an nmda n-methyl-d-aspartate receptor antagonist, which may slow nerve damage.

In brief: Yes
Namenda (memantine) is a great medication used for memory enhancement.
It is at times also used to improve general pain or parkinson disease. It has little side effects and the activating side effects are used for the benefit of the patient if possible.
