As nootropic agent preparation has a positive effect on metabolic processes in the brain, it enhances the synthesis of RNA and phospholipids, increases the concentration of ACE in the brain tissue, enhances glucose utilization stimulates glycolytic processes .  Vinpotropil and its analogues promote the consolidation of memory, improve the integrative function of brain enhance microcirculation, contribute to the process of learning, change the rate of excitation in the brain to inhibit aggregation of activated platelets without causing vasodilatory effects .  The drug has a protective effect in the brain damage caused by electric shocks, intoxication, hypoxia increases the alpha and beta activity in the EEG reduces delta activity, reduces the severity of vestibular nystagmus, helps to improve communication between the hemispheres of the brain, in neocortical structure improves synaptic conductivity .  It increases mental activity, enhances cerebral blood flow without causing sedation and psychostimulant .

As tserebrovazodilatiruyuschego Vinpotropil means and its analogs improve blood circulation in the brain cells, dilates blood vessels of the brain, causing a slight decrease in blood pressure, improve supply of brain cells by glucose and oxygen do brain cells more resistant to hypoxia, facilitating the transportation of the substrates and the energy supply of oxygen to tissues, increase metabolism and absorption of glucose metabolism by directing more favorable aerobic. The drug inhibits phosphodiesterase and adenylate cyclase, promoting tissue accumulation of ATP and cAMP, increases in brain tissue catecholamine content.

Vinpotropila vasodilating properties and its analogs by reducing platelet aggregation, increase erythrocyte deformability and reduce the blood viscosity improving microcirculation in the brain tissue, it has a relaxing effect on the smooth muscles of the brain increases blood flow to ischemic areas of the brain. The drug acts on the body gradually.
