It works by increasing the concentration of the brain chemical i.e phosphatidylcholine. this chemical is important for the functioning of the brain. It also increases the amount of other chemicals which is important for transmitting signals.
Piracetam binds to the polar heads in the phospholipid membrane and counteract the amyloid peptides because amyloid peptides causes disorganization of the membrane leading to neuronal death so piracetam inhibits amyloid and increase membrane stability.
It is absorbed by oral route
