Children aged 7–12 years with memory disorders were treated with Cortexin (30 patients) or Encephabol (30 patients). A comparative study of the efficacy and safety of each of these agents was conducted. Cortexin was found to have greater efficacy (improvements in 86.7% of cases) than Encephabol (improvements in 63.3% of cases), supported by neuropsychological and neurophysiological results.
