Abstract
Background: Intelligence and memory are the most superior cognitive functions. Theses function of brain help to connect to the environment around very smoothly. Early formative years of life are considered as the ‘critical period’ of life. Thus, any skill or knowledge acquired and practiced during the critical period, leaves a strong impression over the life of an individual. In-born (inherited) qualities summed up with acquired qualities do contribute to our performance but the major part involved is of ‘Attitude’. The attitude towards a problem makes an individual more potent and high performing. This is called as Intelligence. The problem solving attitude of a child totally depends up on the attitude that child has developed about the problem. Intelligence and memory are part of cognition which could be definitely enhanced by practice and mind training. An effort was made to evaluate the effect of cognition enhancing drugs mentioned in Ayurveda with augmentation of mind training.

and Alexander Pass Along Performance Test of Intelligence were used as the tools to assess IQ and memory.
