It is hypothesised that guanfacine HCl binds to the alpha-2A-adrenergic cell receptor to act directly in the part of the brain called the prefrontal cortex, an area that is associated with working memory, behavioural inhibition, attention and cognitive control, as well as the ability to orchestrate thought and action.
